    Single Flange Hoops

    Yeah the brass are pricey. Otherwise Gibraltar makes steel ones. The Gibraltar clips look beefier than the traditional style, but the traditional style are more, well, traditional! I doubt you'd hear a difference between the two.

    Who can steam bend a shell for me??? Check out this stunning cherry!

    I looked and can't find a picture of it :-( For popping grain I prefer boiled linseed oil, let dry thoroughly, then applying a topcoat.

    I made a snare from a similar piece of wood. I'll have to see if I have a photo of it. It had that great wavy grain to it.

    Super sensitives discontinued... when?

    I have a post 70's one. It was my first drum and I also have the wire/gut combo snares that a friend found for me who worked for Steve Weiss Music.

    Powder Coating...

    If you go the rattle can route, I suggest you find brand of clear that uses the fan tip. You'll have a much easier time getting a smooth coat without running. Here's a pic of the fan tip.

    I don’t bend wood supplied from customers, but maybe Micah from Cask Drumcraft would.

    Who makes your drum shells and does it matter?

    How much cognitive dissonance is it going to cause on this forum if I told you that the Ludwig seamless brass shells are not spun, nor are they made in the Ludwig factory. Does that matter?

    Yep, true. Kangaroo hide is stronger than calf also. PLUS they come mounted on solid aluminum flesh hoops and are tucked perfectly.

    Thoughts on the Vans Presents the Loyal to the Craft Drum Clinic Tour?

    I think it's great. If you look closely enough, you'll see so many other drum companies, large and small, take cues from SJC on how to create loyal, happy customers. Kudos to them.
