    Coated Emperor X

    Well said. I’ve been a Remo Ambassador Drummer for a long time. I bought a used Sonor chrome Ferro snare recently on eBay, it came with an Aquarian’s triple thread coated head. 3 plies! It sounds wonderful. I’m not going to change it! Enjoy your Emperor X

    OT sort of: Getting Old and getting more cranky

    You can’t make money off copy written material. That’s another can of worms.

    OT sort of: Getting Old and getting more cranky

    I think a lot of these kids that can play perfect drum covers think they’ll get discovered and become famous. Which we know is a very unrealistic expectation. I’ve yet to see a drummer get discovered as a result of drum covers.

    Sonor D 506 score!

    I just bought a used in mint condition on Reverb a Sonor 6.5x14 snare drum. It sounds like Bonham’s LM 402 on steroids! This is the best snare I’ve ever played. That Ferro Chrome is something else.

    Am I asking too much?

    I think people generally speaking are asking for too much money on used drum gear. eBay Reverb etc., eBay is full of used listings that don’t sell.

    What is this thing?

    Those 3 clips are attached to the bass drum shell and hold the muffler against the bass drum head. It’s a great system.

    Once you get a clear acrylic snare there’s no going back. I’ve got supra’s, BB’s and a radio king that haven’t seen the light of day since I got my Sonor acrylic snare. Good luck I hope you find one. Nice kit btw.

    Matt Chamberlain now with Yamaha. Not April Fools

    I guess Gretsch were the best drums he ever played until a better deal came along.

    Just got back from the worst concert in my life !

    I walked out of a Motley Crue show 1987 or 88 don’t remember. The musicianship was sloppy and below average from all 4. Unacceptable I haven’t seen them since.

    Single ply coated tom heads for pop/rock, anyone?

    Stay with coated Ambassadors. The Ambassador X is great on snare, but flat and dull imo on Tom toms.

    I don’t think Ringo ever used a Supraphonic with the Beatles.
