What mic were you using before?
For home use, & some gigs, I use the EV PL35 - on toms too (PL33 on floor tom) - they punch well above their modest price point, & they're bombproof. Having now tested the Beyer M201, it definitely has the edge as a snare mic.

I've never really spent much on drum mic's, as they're provided on most of my gigs, & obviously studio too. I do like to run my own quality bass drum mic though (Heil PR48). For home & occasional gigs, I use a pair of Rode NT3s for overheads. Again, nothing special, but dependable stuff.

Just arrived...the 5.5x13 D.W. wrinkled aluminum 3mm snaredrum from Sweetwater. I was busy as he-- last night. I was boiling some pasta quick..grabbed an ipa out of the fridge and got the drum out..put it between my legs sitting on the couch and with fingers only did my little review. Send it back? NOT this! one..this is an in the boat keeper. Plenty of body..good range..nice adjustments. This is the drum I'll take over the world with.

Wuhan 20" china. Sounds like a gong! I love it so far. I'll be adding some gaff tape though.


And I wanted to try some shaker bead/seed type thing. So I grabbed this up.

Totally an impulse buy in an attempt to improve my mood in my current condition, justified by that and the fact that it's unlike my other snare drums, and the price was right.
13x7 ddrum snare, birch with ash outer veneer.
I think I like it, but, hopefully, I'll be able to tell for sure soon.

Here's a stock pic of one not unlike it. :)
I'll get a pic up asap.

Picked up this Ludwig 110th Anniversary Classic Maple kit for a great price from a Canadian dealer with free shipping . I have had my eye out for one of these sets for awhile now . The wrap is Ludwig’s reintroduction of a wrap they used for only two years in the 1920’s . I think it looks great with the brass hardware . I love the single flange hoops on the toms and the gull wing throwback Spurs .

Just ordered a Pearl Eliminator Redline pedal again. Arrives Wednesday.

Right now I’m playing two direct drives, the trick Pro1v Big Foot and the Tama Dynasync

But i played a chain pedal at guitar center for the first time in a while and the eliminator was always my favorite.

Gonna sell the Dynasync I think

In the past couple months.......

22" K Constantinople Renaissance Ride.....wow what an instrument

13" Pearl Maple Utility snare..... side snare, never had a 13" and was going to build one, but for this price why bother building when you can have something like this for a very reasonable price. Swapped to my familiar Evans head and it sounds decent in its role.

It's funny, so many drummers get hung up on the nuances of the "drumset" meaning analysis paralysis on the shell pack/set of toms, etc. when for many if not most of us, our "sound" is comprised primarily of your hats, snare, kick and ride.........since I really like the sound of my kick (I play Japan made Starclassic Birch Performers from ~2002 when I got them new) , over the years I have focused on quality snares, fell in love with 15" Avedis hats, the K Constantinople filled a sound my other rides could not for me.......

I got 9 packs of 12 count .009 gauge 1st E strings for my guitars from GC online. That's 108 E strings ha ha. I'm pretty sure I'm good until death on E strings. They weren't coiled either, just 12 strings in a simple long skinny bag. Which was nice.

They were only $2.50 a pack. I bought enough to get the free shipping. Who sells 12 of anything for $2.50?

Just for the record, now that I threw that gauntlet down, I am looking forward to all your answers lol

I picked up a set of Booty Shakers yesterday for those times when I mount a rack tom in a snare stand.

They work pretty well because they were too much for my 12" Renown tom. It must have sustained for 8-10 seconds before I stopped it with a finger. Way too much sustain for my liking. I imagine they'll be just about perfect for the 13" Ludwig Accent tom I leave at one of the rehearsal spots I frequent.

If you regularly mount a rack tom in a snare stand, you owe it to yourself to try these things. They work!

As promised, a pic of the one I have- it has a dryness and a pop I really like, and it seems to like a variety of tunings... The throwoff tried to fall apart on me while cleaning, but a PO had set it way too loose, and a nut fell off. Tightened and it feels pretty solid now.
So far, it seems a capable inexpensive snare drum, and, worse case, a decent start for a project.

My latest isn't purchased yet. I'm waiting for Tony to text me when the shipment of Istanbul agope traditional rides arrive. I'd love some help with something...get on YouTube and listen to the 20 agope played by Ben from my cymbal.com. also listen to some 24"paiste 2002 rides. I'm so on the fence here. Some opinions may help push me towards one over the other...ive never been this stuck for a decision. I greatly appreciate anyone's thoughts.
