Yea. Fairly certain he recycled old cracked cymbals and reused them.Are they made out of old cymbals? Looks interesting.
Quick update on that Greb snare...(played for bout 3 hours last night) not going to go into a long fawning rant.. BUT.. i can honestly say at this point i would sell all my other snares just to get one of these.. it's just amazingly good at any tuning, and that wool damper just kills off the very harshest of ringing without deadening the drum much at all.
I'm thinking of selling my '67 Rogers to get the brass greb now.. I don't think i can make the wood one as bright as i like.. but it still sounds unreal
You’re braver than I....and I have ordered a 1TB SSD for the new iMac. It came with a 500GB SSD, which works fine, but the final Time Machine backup I was able to get off the old iMac is like 540GB due to it having a bunch of unnecessary photos and videos and won't load. So we spend more money.
Next-day shipping at OWC was sixteen bucks, so it should be here tomorrow morning. All I'm gonna say is that it BETTER GOT DANG WORK
I’m pretty sure a cracked clip or two is part of the “aged & crusty” look that A&F is known for. No?Man,
If Drum Center of Portsmouth allows me, I think im returning this A&F Snare.
I've played it all of 5 minutes but wanted to add a little bit thicker of a head. So I removed the head. This drum has a single hoops with Clips. Well when I go to put my new head on, the clips kept popping off in 2 places.
So I took them off and examined them and found both had cracks in the metal and the part that grabs the metal hoop was shorter on these 2 than any of the other 2.
Im just turned off by the experience of simply changing a head. I've reached out to A&F to see what they can do. Hopefully they can rush me a few other clips. But even then, not the best taste in my mouth for an 1100 dollar drum.
