    Re: New Snare Recommendations Please ...

    Still loving the new pdp 13x7, but I couldn’t resist and ended up buying a PDP Eric Hernandez 13x5 piccolo snare.

    Black maple shell with gold hardware and hoops. Great punchy side snare for funk...

    There was a lock washer, which should keep it in place, but I will keep an eye on it.

    Re: New Snare Recommendations Please ...

    So, I was playing my brand new PDP snare tonight and heard this strange rattle sound that seemed a stretched snare wire. Upon turning the drum upside down to inspect, I noticed a nut and washer...

    Re: tunebot vs drumdial

    I've been using a tune-bot for 3 years and love it. Store my preferred settings in it for multiple kits to get repeatable levels quickly.

    Re: Why not mount Toms to bass drum?

    Half of my kits have a virgin bass and others have tom mounts. I'm on the fence ... While I definitely prefer my toms to the left of the bass so that my ride is lower and to the right (where the 2nd...

    Zildjian A Custom 16 crash is my favorite. I have 3 of them although each sounds a little different. So I have my favorite among the 3.

    Re: New Snare Recommendations Please ...

    I really wanted the PDP 13x7 maple BUBINGA version, but they're discontinued and impossible to find. I wonder how much of a difference there is between the walnut and bubinga.

    I had a similar experience. My wife bought me a DW Collectors snare, maple with an exotic veneer for Christmas. It is a work of art to look at, but only sounds ok for my taste. I actually prefer my...

    I tried that exact snare at the Drum Center of Portsmouth recently and loved it. Also liked the Canopus The Maple.

    Maybe the Yamaha is a good choice. I remember it having nice high end snap but...

    Re: New Snare Selection

    Re: Tama SLP G-Maple snare unmatched

    @SpazApproved You were the one that recommended the G-maple to me.

    Any recommendations on similar sounding snares? I'm thinking that 13 x 7 is my new preferred size.

    Re: Tama SLP G-Maple snare unmatched

    As a few have suggested, the 13 x 7 size is likely contributing to the sound I'm loving from the G-maple.

    I bought this without playing first, so I'm a little concerned about that, but I have high expectations.
