Ok, you were right - it is a bit tricky :)

I thought I'd give the snare competition track a quick try out. I only got half way though because I didn't have much time, I'm essentially winging it, but I agree with other observations, it's not...

Re: 15" x 8" snare - now sorted - video - 4 tunings.

I like that you speak your mind Larry, & all's good, but here's my thoughts.

first up, it's worth noting that zebrano is actually a very bright wood. It has all that rosewood like midrange...

Re: Big maple fun :)

Yes, a degree of definition was missing. Plenty of bottom end, almost too much actually :)

Thank you :) I'll get a recording of a higher tuning up at some stage.

Re: 15" x 8" snare - now sorted - video - 4 tunings.

Thanks Wes, It's an interesting vibe for sure. Damn, I've just remembered I forgot to get back to you on those rack parts :(

TBH, the 15" wouldn't be my first choice for a general snare, but as a...

15" x 8" snare - now sorted - video - 4 tunings.

All that was needed was a few minutes lowering the reso head tension. I naturally gravitate to cranking the reso on all snares, even for very low tunings. I find it excites the shell more...

Re: Big maple fun :)

There's more than enough room loading of the bottom end, but I was missing some head slap :)

Re: Big maple fun :)

Thank you Derek, that's what we're shooting for, despite their focussed & controlled nature.

Hahaha :) That's an easy one, they would sound like - well - maple, only more so if that makes sense. ...

Re: What if you unwittingly stole someones gig?

THAT'S a game changer right there. I'd only take the gig permanently with the other drummer's blessing.

New Mike Dolbear TV show goes live tonight.

I hope I'm not crossing the line on this, but for the edification of all, I'd like to draw attention to a new online based drumming TV show that "airs" tonight for the first time.

Re: I've got a big one ------ &

Thanks Larry :) I actually think zebrano has more bite than either maple or ash. Did you listen this clip of the 13" x 7"? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdqUzWg_ni8&feature=youtu.be

I know...

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

Now this is an attitude I'd like the semi pro & pro players to take a tiny piece of. They can work through this track almost on the fly, & can post up cover videos with ease, so why not jump in on...

Damn, I thought Jules liked his women as splayed as his tension rods. I guess he's not the outback rebel I imagined :(

Re: I've got a big one ------ &

An evolving project indeed. I'll try to spend some time with it tomorrow. All I've done up tip now is tune it up as I would a 14" drum. Time to experiment, & maybe revisit the edges if I need to. ...

Exactly!

Earlier in this thread, I posted a link to the full version of the track c/w drums & vocals. You may find this very useful in determining the original backbeat placement. To make life...

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

Thanks for this Eric, & yes, I understand, that's why I introduced the short edit version for those entering group 1 & 2 to use. That short edit version, you can easily play the money beat from...

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

I'm really pleased you're putting something up Al, but I doubt anyone will be imitating Jim's submission - it's pretty unique (including teddybear!!)

Re: Hating your playing, sometimes or always.

Thaardy my man, I think the fine folk here should realise you're a player of very considerable skill. That's an important piece of context right there.

Reading between the lines, I'm getting...

i have both Galata & Dervish series Amedia cymbals (amongst others). Great to see the inspiration for the series names :)

Re: I've got a big one ------ &

I have no issue with high overtones, but this one is discordant, & needs to be sorted out.

Thank you :)

I'm mostly happy with it.

You know - you kinda got me here. All our drums are...

Re: using snare of different material than shellpack

A snare is meant to be a different voice to the rest of the kit most of the time. perhaps one exception is where the snare drum is used wires off as part of a melodic progression with the toms. ...

Re: Congratulations Jules

Perhaps he's actually a guitarist, or even worse, a bass drum abusing singer!
