Does anyone know what kind of snare drum Joseph "Ziggy" Modeliste aka Zigaboo used on the famous Meters recording, 'Cissy Strut'? I personally think this may be the second funkiest groove of all time, with Clyde Stubblefield's 'Cold Sweat' groove being number one and Clyde Stubblefield's 'Funky Drummer' groove being a close third. When comparing the snare drum sounds between 'Cissy Strut' and 'Funky Drummer', I noticed that they are very different, though I love both. I'm pretty sure that Stubblefield used a 14x5 chrome over aluminum snare, probably a Ludwig Supraphonic or something similar. It has a high, dry, cracking sound. 'Cissy Strut', on the other hand seems a bit deeper and much more ringy. I'm guessing he used a deeper, brass snare; maybe a 14x6.5 Ludwig Black Beauty nickel over brass, but I can't seem to find any information on it. There is a great video of Zigaboo playing 'Cissy Strut' on Youtube entitled 'Zigaboo Modeliste w/ Friends Cissy Strut Live @ Rockefeller' in which he appears to be using a wooden snare, but it does not have the same ringy tone as the original recording.
