Re: Ludwing SupraPhonic or Ludwing Supersensitive or Acrolite

Unless you really want a black drum, just buy a Supra.

As for the sizes, I would suggest that you try them both and buy the one that sounds best to you and will best meet your needs.

Re: Ludwing SupraPhonic or Ludwing Supersensitive or Acrolite

The Acrolite, though inexpensive, is a very articulate and versatile snare. I own Keystone badged Acros, Supraphonics and a lone Supersensitive from the 1960s, all of them great snares.

Re: Stolen

I'm in the US, and I recently paid $1500 for a new Yamaha sax for my son. They are indeed pricey.

Good luck in your search, and two thumbs up for your dedication to your friend.

VerdanS is correct; many drummers use such techniques to dampen unwanted overtones and ring that their drums produce when struck. Ring and overtones can be described as discordant sounds...

Re: Uneven edge on Black Panther snare

I am completely uninformed on Black Panthers, but are you sure the uneven bit is not the snare bed?

If not, I would return the drum, that is if you bought it new.

I'll start off by saying that if you are really in pain, get medical help, don't ask drummers for medical advice, unless of course you run across one who is also a orthopedist.

Re: Using Income tax money to buy drums/equipment?


I won't be getting a return this year; I had to write the IRS a check for $27,875.

But that won't stop me from buying new gear, unless my wife hides the checkbook.
