In an ode to Cymbalholic, I motion to start a new Bird's Eye thread for all to enjoy.
I used to get an immense amount of enjoyment when I'd scroll back through the years of that thread. Maybe we can keep the tradition going here?
I'll start us off with my current attic practice-space setup.
I kind of thought by the time I was 30, band practices wouldn't be relegated to such undesirable places, but...
I guess I was wrong.
Here ya go:
20-8-13 w/ a steel 14x6.5
Super thin banged-up 15" trannies, 21" Bos Syncopation and a 19" Sweet crash.
Yes it is. 10 lugs model. Currently I have Fiberskyn on, but that doen't seem right. It may need some kind of coated 2-ply, just to add some weight. I am open to suggestions. Thank youIs that one of those ribbed shelled aluminum slingerland student snares? I still regret not stealing one from my middle school twenty years later
Ours still had smooth white slingerland branded black dots and sounded good. In general with a new snare I like to try a coated ambassador and see how that goes. If thats too lively I usually go to a coated emperor or coated black dot. Aluminum is usually fairly dry so the more extreme options like powerstrokes are rarely necessary for a general purpose snare sound.
Not to keep derailing this thread, but I’d try the regular coated emperor first. Vintage emperor is even thicker so you’ll lose less body on a shallow snare with the regular. Have funThank you for the advise. I am planning to get either a regular EMPEROR COATED or EMPEROR VINTAGE COATED head for this drum, though not really sure RE the difference between the 2. I may create a new thread about this snare since this room is for cymbals. Thanks again.
