    a Walberg and Auge...maybe?

    Yeah...I'm thinking the snare shell might be...but even the butt....looks too generic and recent.

    Least harmful cymbal repair - suggestions?

    another option would be to widen the crack and devine the end points (sort of make the crack more like a smile...or green bean... I'm not a fan of drilling holes at the end...i've seen two many times where the crack just continues...I like the idea of losing a little mass/cutting the cancer out...

    Help identifying snare

    it'd be great if you want a cheap timbale...or the parts to make something...if they were half decent (lugs/rods/hoops).... For $5 you could use it for an arts and crafts project (DCP has a bass drum chandelier)

    Ludwig Standard snare price check

    that's one of the rarer finishes I think. I'd look at Reverb and Ebay completed auctions to get some ideas.

    22/12/14 setups

    i have the 22/12/14 combo in acrylic...got it for a song...used. I like the articulateness of the 14 more than the boom of a 16.

    Skb 22” - with wheels or not

    I'd go with wheels...the extra weight shouldn't be a big deal if you're using the cart too but here's what I'm thinking... 1) How tired are you after a gig... 2) How old are you 3) How active are you otherwise If you have one day where you wrench your back (before after or during the gig) and...

    ID Info On My Walberg & Auge Snare Drum?

    03553 might be March 1955 ...day 3. Its a date stamp but they don't always make sense. I think that badge went thru til the 50s and the Precision era. I have a bass drum of similar build (24x8)...but it has a similar badge (just the drum cut out) glued to the rering. W/A continued to build...

    Roland Pad being triggered by snare noise

    the problem might not be the pad itself. Can you play with the sensitivity of the pad? can you have someone hold it near where you have it mounted? I'm guessing that the pad is so sensitive that the snare hit is causing the pad or the stand its attached to...vibrate enough to trigger the pad...

    Upper Tier Snares and the Veblen Effect?

    loving this thread...for three reasons 1) There's a cymbal on Amazon I just can't pull the trigger on....I'd like it but don't need it even at a great price 2) I did a gig two weeks ago where the guy after us had a Joyful noise snare...it sounded awesome and I let him know...he said he liked...

    I want to have my daughter decorate a snare....(Paints, top coat etc)

    Following. I guess you could contact Bum Wrap about having her drawings done on a wrap...not sure if that makes things easier or harder.
