    Mix drum head types?

    I used to be fussy about the heads being all the same - not anymore, getting the sound I want is more important, no one else cares anyway.

    I was going to ask if it was a typo but thought it was a bit rude to do so!

    Gretsch Broadkaster Snare drum review

    Thank you. Wow! 190 hz at the lug is really low. Most of my Ambassador snare sides go from 350hz - 380.hz I'll try it though. Keep up the snare presentations.

    Gretsch Broadkaster Snare drum review

    Thanks. That colour is just magnificent! I think you have said a few times that you out Diplomats on the snare side of your deeper drums - I tried that with a couple of 6 1/2 " drums but the Diplomat just kept stretching and de - tuning. Did you find that happens?

    Do I need a bronze snare?

    I have a Ludwig Hammered Bronze and won't part with it. I had a Copperphonic but that never got played because the Bronze was always ahead of it. They have " meat on the bones" I reckon.

    I had exactly the same injury, except I have one tear only. Currently seeing a physio and undertaking exercises prescribed by the physio. Nighttime is the worst as I can'y find a position without it hurting. The dull constant ache seems worse. I don't know if it is drumming related as I have a...

    Same as Bo and Bermuda, haven't used the sleeves and the crosstown gear sits in my bag with all sorts of other equipment. No noticable scratches to see.
