    Drum Supply House DIY snare kits

    Be aware, their customer service is very hit or miss at Drum Supply House. Do a search around here. That said, these are a great deal and great shell.

    Remo Classic Fit

    Just won a modded Supra!

    You’ll most likely need an adjustable spacing throw like the Inde. Good news is it’s very similar to the new Ludwig, as they were designed by the same guy (Josh at Inde).

    Is that some sort of Math riddle there for us drummers?

    Going to DaVille for the Snare Drum Build

    I’d say go with whatever size you normally play. I do actually prefer the thinner 1/4” shell with milled in rings to the straight 1/2” shell. The older style 1/2” have a lot of crack, but not as much body as the thinner shell with rings (which because of the rings, has similar crack, but quite...

    Anyone using a 13" snare drum as the main snare?

    13x7 is a great size that has a similar range as a 14x5, but with more depth to the sound, but still a nice pop and higher pitch.

    Duluth Brass Manufacturing Redux.

    I haven’t seen anyone chrome plate bronze hoops, but I’m sure a plating company could advise you. Unfortunately I don’t know of any other than Southern California (La Habra Plating). I have seen one shell done in black by Justin Nebe at Nebe drums on Instagram. I loved the look so much, I’m...

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    Both. They actually sound great together, one is higher/trashier, the other smoother and lower. But they usually end up split up, because it’s a very specific sound when paired together.

    Serious snare question - The actual sonic difference between 5 and 6.5

    This is how I tune mine. Shallower snares low/deep, deeper drums higher (but still retain body because of depth of shell).

    The Cure Drum Tone

    Searched some other forums and found that Boris Williams, The Cure’s drummer used a Noble & Cooley solid snare with a Black beauty as a backup while he was with them. Kit was a Yamaha 9000 series. As far as production, sounds like 80’s gated reverb to me. (compressed reverb with a sharp gate...
