    Ludwig modular madness! (In a good way!)

    Changing things around a bit in my studio. Set up the 99’ cherry classic maples with Mach lugs (8,10,12,14,20, hh black beauty), and because I ordered them without mounts, I can change it up. Decided to use the modular. I love the stuff!

    Snare drum wire mounting, string or plastic straps?

    Hi everyone- I have noticed lately that the snares/wires seem to lay better with string vs the plastic straps. Obviously this is n/a to super sensitives and extended strainer setups. Thoughts and opinions.
