    Snare recommendations for maximum versatility

    coated diplomats on the bottom, any difference?

    Hey Seb, I think this is an interesting observation you posted. I'm interested particularly in this idea: "Coated bottom heads in general: I used to think they'd only change the decay time of the fundamental, but they also seem to influence the overtones of the batter head.

    Paiste Sound Edge shootout

    Hi Hat clutch - how to cover the threads to prevent keyholing ?

    Outdoor gigs in the Florida heat

    This pic was from a gig down in Islamorada. The stage is a floating dock that actually rose up considerably higher with the incoming tide by the end of the night. The July Florida heat was brutal. It had just rained an hour before we set up and the carpeting on the drum riser was soaked like a...
