    Default Cracked DW Edge Snare Fix

    So one of my students brought me his DW Edge snare drum to look at. It has a nice size crack in the shell and he was scared of it getting any bigger. So here was my solution to the problem. Build a plate like I did for my Yamaha to help spread out the pressure. We decided to build a big enough plate that even the lugs will connect to it. This will assure there is no pressure on the crack from the throw off and snare wires. We are ordering a new mag throw off and 3pt butt so once those come in we will make a finished sound video.

    That was cool man. That plate looks pretty beefy for such a thin snare which makes me wonder how it would affect the resonance and tuning with the added weight? Was there too much of a gap in the crack to glue it together? Thanks....
