They all did. Even Gretsch ( die cast of course). There's werent that many 10 lug snares until the 70's, so a lot of the older singles seem to be 8 lug..I’d say Ludwig had it right with the 1.6 hoops.
Seriously. I'd much more quickly purchase something that Amy said was good than anything endorsed by Vinnie et al.After reading your post Jay it occurs that the 1.6 pearl may be the best of both worlds. I’d prolly give it a whirl for shts and grins and because Amy likes it
It appears that Pearl is making these for 14” 10 hole drums for batter side and snare side. They also make a 14” 8 hole batter side but not 14” 8 hole snare side - too bad. I think these would be great on 8 lug snares! If possible, could you please ask Gene if they are thinking of adding the 14” 8 lug snare side? Thanks!
- Don't worry about trends. Do what works for you and the music you play.So, just when I've finished outfitting a seven-piece kit with diecast hoops, the trend is now swinging back to the 1.6mm hoops that the kit came with?
Just like me - always living behind the curve. Like, I just bought my first CD player, then I see I should have bought a new record player.
I don't know whether to keep up, or keep behind!
