The node is the point at which it doesn’t resonate and therefore the optimal place for placing something that will interfere with the resonance.One snare drum I had was similar and they called those lug positions "nodal" points but I have only heard of those in optical scenarios .......
There is always one in the crowd, most of the time that is me so I just take it on the chin.
I agree that the badge placement is original but I think, like their lug placement the vent hole placement is strategic.
I can tell you one thing...with the SS drums, the deeper they get, the mellower they are.That's crazy beautiful - I'm telling you I look on Reverb and other sites daily at Noble and Cooley SS snares -
Walnut, Tulip and Cherry are on my radar, I just wish I could play one first - maybe a road trip is in order?
Yes, 7”x14”. I have one in Maple also and am ordering one in Tulip. I’ll give a good review once I get them all together.Wow. That's beautiful. Is it 7x14?
Thanks for sharing your story in such detail. It's inspiring me to buy a N&C. Which is not good! Haha. I'm excited for a review when you get a chance to bang around on it.
