    Pearl SO 25 replacement snare wires

    Does anyone know of a replacement for Pearl's SO25 snare wires? The ones that fit the Free Floating system. These seem to be getting harder to find and I couldn't find anything on the Pearl website. As always, thanks for your help.

    Software for Drum Notations

    I was going through one of my method books, specifically "Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer" by Jim Chapin ( Latest edition).

    Going to DaVille for the Snare Drum Build

    I really like the Indie strainer and butt plate. RCW is another good strainer option. I would recommend both Drum Factory and Drum Gear online. I've never used AM Drum parts. Good luck with your project!

    OT: let's see your high mileage vehicles

    I had a 72 "Nickel Dime", a 76 280Z, and a 92 Nissan Sentra SE-R - Pictured,(considered The Son of the original 510). I was driving the Sentra home from work after it had been raining on Hwy 101 in Northern CA. I was a bit....enthusiastic.....driving home north bound and was close to my exit...

    Fibes snare project finally completed.

    Have a Fibes fiberglass shell (6 * 14) with original lugs that I've had in storage. Finally put it together this last week. Chrome wrap from Walopus, Indie strainer and butt plate, Tama snare wires, Remo snare head, and generic Fiberskyn batter head. At some point I want to send it to Pro Drum...

    HIGGINS . . .

    Cute beast! The name Higgins reminds me of the character from the "Magnum" tv series. What's the breed? Give him a good home. Cheers!

    Tympani Heads For Roto Toms

    Cascio Music usually carries the rototom tympani head for about $18 (14"). However the website says they are out of them but expecting more soon. A common head is a Remo clear with a black dot and I've also seen quite a few pinstripe heads on rototoms.

    Rattle Cans...

    I did this Ludwig piccolo with Hunter Green stain. As it's been mentioned, shell preparation is the key. It was a fun project. Sorry I don't have better photos (its on top of the ever so stable stack of snares) and unfortunately the drum is gone.
