This is where the “quick 5 minute break” comes in. Or, one of the members fills some time talking about your upcoming shows, merch, website, or talks about the inspiration for the next song, an anecdotal story, or a funny thing that happened during the last gig…A snare strap tore on me a couple weeks ago. Had to play most of a set like that because the backup was in the car.
So it sounded like Lars' Frantic snare?A snare strap tore on me a couple weeks ago. Had to play most of a set like that because the backup was in the car.
Ok I admit it , I was lazy yesterday and paid for it . Some background , until recently I always took two snares to a gig (wood and metal ) and since the last couple weeks I had been lazy and only brought out one snare . I had been lucky as I have not had issue with bringing a snare that did not work for my particular situation . Well last night that came to light . I had an outdoor gig in a large space and decided to take a Sonor Benny Greb snare . Atypically this snare is used for smaller rooms for me and ai really like the sound . Well yesterday it just sounded thin with no body at this outdoor venue . The weather was cold and there was the threat of rain . I spent most of the gig tweaking it between tunes and never got a sound I was happy with . Atypically I would have swapped snares to my second snare which I am sure would have worked better .
Well I have learned my lesson and the Beato Pro 1 dual snare bag will be coming out again with two snares .
I've been playing for almost 30 years, and I've never needed an extra snare. I still carry one, but I've never needed it.
However, we all know what happens whenever I decide to stop...
