    The Cure Drum Tone

    Hello! Over months I’ve been narrowing down the perfect drum sound I want to mimic per say! Anyway I’ve chiseled it down to Taylor Hawkins on Wasting Light and/but mainly The Cure’s drum tones. I’ve been scouring the internet trying to find out which snare drum might have been used on the...

    Camco Oaklawn Badge Tuxedo Lug WMP 5 x14 Snare

    Hey y'all, I have a Camco Oaklawn Badge Tuxedo Lug WMP 5 x14 Snare that could see more use than I've been giving it. I've owned the drum since the mid 90's, bought it used from a friend. It may have seen a live gig here and there, but for the most part of the last 25 or so years, it has been...

    Yamaha Steve Jordan Signature Snare (6.5x13)

    Anyone who knows drums knows this is a killer. Great crack, very versatile tuning range, easy on the eyes and reasonably priced.

    Mystery PEARL Snare?

    Hi! I got a snare in Michigan. The snare (& Michigan!!) is quite a state! I’ve oiled & cleaned it; added Lug Gaskets & switched round the internal muffler (which is my long time favourite modification BTW) but nothing more... It seems to never have had a badge but, as I say, it WAS neglected...

    Why Does My Snare Sound Like This?

    Example: My snare was sounding fine until it suddenly started to have this terrible buzz and ring to it. I tried loosening and tightening the top skin, bottom skin, snare wires and also put different combinations of blu-tack on the top and bottom as dampeners but nothing fixes the horrible...
