Whatever snare drum Bun E. is playing on Cheap Trick’s The Flame.
Excuse my ignorance, but what is NOB? Is it a wood or metal snare?I asked Bun E this once and maybe he will chime in and correct me. I thought he said it was a 20's NOB 5x14 tube lug snare. It does sound great on this recording. I kick myself because I went to the Hollywood drum show back in 1998 as I was living in Las Vegas for a really short time with a friend of mine. Bun E's gold sparkle classic Ludwig set from the videos was being sold for....$695! I couldn't believe it and if I didn't have to fly back to Vegas, I might have tried to stuff this in a car to get home. It was a Bonham sized set though so it would have taken up a lot of room. I have a pic of it somewhere with the price on it too because I couldn't believe it.
Metal. It’s an acronym for Nickel Over Brass. The classic Black Beauty, for example, is so called because she’s black nickel over brass.Excuse my ignorance, but what is NOB? Is it a wood or metal snare?
Is it a 1920’s Ludwig Black Beauty. It seems incredibly warm for a metal snare, but then again my late 90’s BB is the warmest metal snare I have.Metal. It’s an acronym for Nickel Over Brass. The classic Black Beauty, for example, is so called because she’s black nickel over brass.
By comparison, COB would be Chrome Over Brass, while Moons Over My Hammy is a breakfast at Denny’s, but that’s not important right now.
The best thing I could ever wind up with is the actual drum kit Ron Tutt played with the Jerry Garcia Band: his Ludwig thermogloss, pretty sure was a 24" bass drum.
