    Gigs, feast or famine.

    My covers band have managed to maintain two or three gigs a month this year, but The World Cup that started yesterday has made things a bit interesting for the next month as our usual venues are trying to book us around the games. The early part of next year is looking ok so far too.

    Going back to Remo

    Verdict - It's a good sounding head which to get it where I liked the tone was slightly higher than where I'm usually at. Also to my battered ears, it sounded much better with half a moon gel. I'll give it a proper run out at the next rehearsal, but so far, I think I'm pleased with my move.

    Not yet. What would be their CS reverse dot equivalent?

    Going back to Remo

    I'd completely overlooked the UV1, but I do have another snare in need of a refresh and Christmas isn't far off!

    Going back to Remo

    Funnily enough, I have a coated G2 on an acrylic piccolo 12" that works rather well.

    I did look at the p77, but was concerned that it might be a tad too muffled for what I'm aiming for?

    Going back to Remo

    I I'm currently using and very much liking Evans EC2s on my toms added to an Emad2, which is by far the best sounding BD head I've ever tried on my old Premier kit, so it may just be a snare drum re-conversion for now?

    Going back to Remo

    I I toyed with using a similar Evans head, like those you've mentioned, but I have an old 14x6,10 lug metal snare, of unknown make, that came to me with a Rogers head that someone had retrofitted a reverse dot to, which used to sound great. The closest head to that looks like a controlled...

    Going back to Remo

    For years I played Remo heads on my snares, mostly Ambassador or Pinstripes,before deciding I wanted what an Evans Genera HD could offer me. At last nights gig I finally concluded that I in fact missed a more lively sounding snare and the first thing I did this morning was ordering a Remo...

    Giving up drumming.

    I walked away in 2008, following becoming a father for the first time, which overwhelmed me mentally physically and financially. I returned, unintentionally through a series of coincidences in 2019, and I have to say, it's now the driving contributor to my mental wellness, but I made the right...

    Top Fired Drummers

    That would surely have been a list of past Spinal Tap drummers?

    Premier coming back to the US!

    I'm genuinely interested to see how these new Genista's compare to the originals, as I've long hankered after a set and having never bought a kit new, this could satisfy both.
