Heres my View:
Tama SC Walnut birch in Molten Brown burst. Tama SLP Dynamic Kapur 6.5 x 14 Snare with Evans Generra Dry Head and Grover Jazz Bright Snare wires.
8", 10" and 12" rack toms with Remo Emperor coated.
14" and 16" Floor toms with Evans G2 clear ( OEM heads)
22" Kick with Evans EQ4...
Depends on what im playing.... Thrash or alt , yes i use shoulder. Pop or jazz , obviously use only the tip and always closed., and only Nylon tip sticks. They sound way better to me. 14" paiste 2002 sound edge
RN i only muffle my snares. bought some moongel knock offs on amazon and they stick really well. have 4 on my Maple snare with black Dot Remo. On my Kapur i use a wrist sweat band taped to the hoop so i can flip it off easily when i want more overtone. I have Evans Genera Dry coated head on that.
I ended up Tuning the 8" Pretty high and a half turn higher on the Lug closest to the snare. That helped a lot but still there. Oh well, ill just muffle it when i record then. Annoying but ive done all i can.
I am getting Buzz on the 8" tom only and i have Grover Snare wires on the wood snare.. I don't care if i hear it, but the Mics are picking it up on recordings. Any ideas? I have low tuned the 8" and that helps. I am going to try Moongels on the reso on the Tom.
Im with you. I love it on my Tama SLP Kapur wood snare. I tried black Dot Remo and Coated G2 and both had insane amounts of Overtones. I have a small sweatband taped to the hoop that i can flip on or off for when i want some muffling. I dont love this snare for all styles though.
It's not good...
yes. love it. also many long quiet scenes of them riding and talking. I watch it at least 3 or 4 times a year. Guys bleed, guys cry, guys get scared. Im puzzled as to why its not higher ranked by Critics. A classic Good vs Evil story no more no less.
Simple Solution buy a Tama Iron Cobra HH stand... Tama Hardware us all ive used and ive never had that problem. Even their Cheap stands ( i think roadmaster series? ) are good. they arent lightweight though. lightweight = equals no stability IMO
i must bought my first new kit ever earlier this year. Tama Starclassic WB. I hated all the Finishes except 5
Molten Brown Burst ( Which i bought)
ocean blue ripple
transparent mocha fade
so yeah, looks matter a lot
