Not consciously. Good question. I need to pay attention the next time I am playing brushes on that snare drum.Mike, do you have to increase the angle between the brushes and the head due to the tall hoops and claws (assuming you're sweeping and not playing them like sticks)?
I just dug up a video of my playing brushes on a regular snare drum. I apparently play with a pronounced angle regardless, so I probably do not need to adjust for the wood hoops:Mike, do you have to increase the angle between the brushes and the head due to the tall hoops and claws (assuming you're sweeping and not playing them like sticks)?
What brand is in the bathroom, DDrum?My new (to me) Sonor AQ2 bop kit (18x14, 12x8, 14x14 and 14x6 snare drum) with 13 inch Soultone Latin hats and a 19 inch Soultone Vintage flat ride. New heads all around: toms Remo Vintage Coated Ambassadors top and bottom, Snare drum Remo Coated Vintage Ambassador batter and Ambassador Hazy for snare side. Bass drum: Remo Coated Ambassador resonant, and Remo Coated Ambassador Pinstripe batter. I also swapped out the snares for a 16-strand set of Puresounds. The kit sounds great. I am still growing accustomed to the hardware. I am sure that I will come to love it.
