Who cares? If a metal snare drum or a 20” bass drum makes someone happy and the band they play in likes it, that’s what matters. The drummer in my current band uses an 18” kick and a Supra. He used my Ludwig set with a 22 last week and a Tama Superstar maple snare that came with the set he usually uses. Know what it sounded like?
My girlfriend can tell. I blindfold her when we go out to hear bands. If she fails then she doesn’t get coffee or breakfast the next morning.Did anyone note that 100% of the non-drummers in the audience, can't tell the difference?
