This may be an old thread ,but nobody really answered it.Would someone who's played one of these provide their review of this snare? I've heard it played on youtube but I'd like a drummer's perspective.
Turns out the throw is also not particularly well thought out too.That snare gate is lousy.
If they're all like that they are they should be scolded for it.
Do you know if this is a definite fix?Using a no-collar Remo Clear Ambassador would clear up the snare gate issue. It'll also give you a little more breathing room before running into the snare butt too.
Yes. The no collar head will offer you about 3/8" more clearance when cranked down. I love those heads. The Ludwig snare side is a pretty shallow collar as well. Ambassadors are the deepest collars I've seen. I use Remo no collars exclusively on all my snares. If Evans made them, I'd switch, but as of now they don't. I put a request in to Ben (EvansSpecialist) to ask Evans to make them.Do you know if this is a definite fix?
I spoke with the engineer at Conn-Selmer and he said the are doing redesign in the Spring of 2017.
