    Re: Deeper sound from 5" snare?

    Re: Deeper sound from 5" snare?

    The PS3 didn't work on this one for me. It didn't remove enough ring, just kind of shifted the overtones around and seemed less sensitive.

    But in a surprise twist I picked up an old 6.5" maple...

    Re: Deeper sound from 5" snare?

    Ya starting to see that I may have to explore different snare drums altogether.

    I'm definitely going to try the popsicle stick!

    Tube lug question

    Hey all, I use a PDP snare with 1 3/8" (35 mm) hole spacing on the lugs. Lately I thought about changing them due to some rods sticking and the hideous ovals. Then I discovered that nobody sells 1...

    Hey with all due respect I know a load of drummers who keep time by bashing stuff... that doesn't qualify as making music tho. I only know a handful who sing through their kit however... For sure...

    Newbie tries die cast hoops

    So I have this PDP bronze snare that I dig but have struggled a bit to get the most out of it. I messed with tuning ad nauseum, different heads and snare wires. It gives a nice quick, sensitive...

    Re: Can a snare stand affect sound?

    My best guess is the plastic ball could be dampening slightly as the metal parts are decoupled? But even then, it's only the energy reflecting back into the shell that would be affected.

    Can a snare stand affect sound?

    Solder for snare wires?

    Let's say you were inclined to experiment with snare wires the DIY route. What solder would one use to attach them to the plates? I'm not taking about re-soldering a single wire that came off but...

    Man, I got some time to really tune it in and frankly it was pissing me off! I somehow got one lug way too high and never noticed or heard it. I took the reso off and started from scratch. I decided...

    My snare needs something...

    So I bought this used PDP hammered bronze snare a while back (14x5). I got it mainly because it was a real phosphor bronze shell at a ridiculous price $130 cdn +tax (~$100 US). I was tired of my...
