    Re: Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute

    I have a Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute kit that I purchased new in 1999. The build quality, look and sound are excellent. I'll never sell them.

    I have a Yamaha Recording Custom brass snare (13.5 x 6) and am considering replacing the snare wires. The drum is like new, so the original wires are in perfect condition.

    Re: My Worldmax 7X13 brass snare build.

    Awesome snare!! But, how do you avoid mangling sticks when you hit rim shots on those claw hooks and lug nuts that are higher than the rims? The look is fantastic!!

    Snare with Claw Hooks / Rim Shots

    In my never-ending search for snares, I'm considering a few that have claw hooks on the rim. Very cool look, but I'm wondering if those get in the way for rim shots. Also, I noticed the lug nuts are...

    Just scored a DW Collectors kit in black oyster glass. 20/10/12/14 maple. As a mostly Tama guy, I've been very impressed by this kit.

    You're right that I'm biased toward the SC bubinga. But, I already have 2 SC kits and should try to broaden my horizons. I like the saturn iv exotic maple burl (with walnut) kit more than expected....

    Re: New Kit Recommendations?

    I found a great deal on Starclassics Bubinga kit. Not my first choice on color, but very nice, and reasonably priced. This kit will sound awesome and be easier to sell if or when I'm ready.
