    Re: Parade Snare Drums

    Yessir......I get all that.
    You spend a lot of money and still it sounds so bad.
    Defeats the priority purpose, IMO.

    Yes -- Fragile -- 50th Anniversary

    This album was a real game-changer for me.........hard to believe it has been 50 years.

    Re: Possible Dream Kit today?

    Makes sense.
    The Gretsch website doesn't mention the reissue in their badge history, but I've heard about this before.
    In addition, those tom mounts certainly don't jive with 1981.
    You are going...

    Re: which should I get and why?

    I agree with these guys.
    If you want Mapex, think Saturn; if you want Tama, think Starclassic.
    You will not appreciate the lower lines of either for long.
    Between the two, my choice would be Tama.

    Love those similar sizes, Rick.
    During the 70s, those oversized shells were the norm.
    Glad we both stuck with them all of these years.
    I still believe the 24 bass is the bomb.

    I received my shipment of Gretsch USA shells 44 years ago today (8/26/77).
    The lacquer coat is all spider-webbed but otherwise, good as new.
