    Needing some advice with changing snare wires

    This is the thing that confuses me. The wires should already have been pulled snug against the head before tightening the screws down. You shouldn't need to add much more tension at the adjustment knob. Rereading the first post, I'm not sure I totally understand what you mean by: Are you...

    Needing some advice with changing snare wires

    I feel like there's a process issue at work here. No matter the throw off, you should be able to: Start with the throw off engaged and the tension almost as loose as it can go. Center the wires between the edges of the bottom head, leaving a little less space on the butt side. Thread the...

    Thinking of Taking on a Project

    No they cannot. I asked the same thing for my project but their process doesn't make that possible. I just went ahead and had them drill for the lugs.

    Thinking of Taking on a Project

    I've had Precision Drum do quite a few projects for me in the past, mostly bearing edge re-cutting and having shells cut down. This was my first time having them edge/drill new shells and once again their work was flawless. They even called me to discuss a few options and to verify my...

    Thinking of Taking on a Project

    I just had Precision make me a couple shells in small sizes Ludwig never made using Keller shells. Their work, customer service, and turnaround time were all outstanding. :)

    Ludwig Bronze Beauty 2020

    I had given up all hope they'd make a bronze Black Beauty ever again. This is super cool! :)

    Remo Renaissance Snare Side and Evans EC Reso ?

    I wouldn't consider the Renaissance snare side as an overtone-reducing type of a head, but I don't really think of any snare side as producing that many overtones either. The Renaissance snare side gives a very dark, papery snare response. It sounds great if you're looking for a very dry and...

    Hoops...

    Whoops! Too many brand names running through my head! :P

    Hoops...

    I have to admit I'm super intrigued by Pearl's Tru-Hoop. They're 1.6mm, but they're supposed to be more rigid than a flanged hoop.

    Hoops...

    I'm not a big fan of 1.6mm hoops in general, but anything that cannot maintain structural integrity through the shipping process is an issue for sure. My own past experiences with 1.6mm hoops on toms always left me feeling like the tone of the drum wasn't stable enough. When comparing the same...

    Zildjian ZHT

    I have a few Sabian APX cymbals (and a fantastic ZHT Mastersound hihat) precisely for those times when I need glassy and plenty of cut. I wish the APX line would have survived a little longer but I know if I need any holes in my set-up filled in I'd head straight for the Zildjian S series.

    Zildjian ZHT

    Application is totally everything. I've found that in general a lot of the low-ish line cymbals work well in louder situations because the subtle nuances they lack are often inaudible anyway, and the funky clang can help then cut through. Obviously my preference is "nice" sounding cymbals that...
