How do you like the Yamaha FRP? I've been thinking about getting one.
I like it, but it don't get much playing time at the moment.

This snare as the response of a metal snare without the metallic overtones.
It's crisp, sensitive, warmer than most metal snares but not as warm as a maple snare.
So..........if I find one for a 'good' deal, should I get it? I know you don't know me or my current snare collection, so basically, would you buy it again?



It's not a must, but if you find a good deal it definitely worth a try.

That snare has a unique kind of neutral voice.
It's not too dark, not too bright, not too warm, not too sharp.
It also has great hardware.




Thanks for the info. :occasion5:

Thanks ConvertedLudwigPlayer.

I took digital photography more seriously about two years ago and I really like it.

That book is a great way to start.

Hey fellow Canuck. Nice collection. Maybe you could set up a thread on here about Digital photography. My son is into Graphic design, and we just bought a Sony a7ii mirrorless camera. Would be great to get some tips from you, since you obviously know how to capture drum pics. I am always wishing I had more light. Are you using photo lights at all?

Thanks Bandit.

I still consider myself a beginner in Digital photography.
I use photo lights on some of these pics, mostly the ones with a white background.
I almost always use a tripod and a Remote Shutter.

Since you bought a Sony A7II, you can start with this.

Tony and Chelsea Northrup always offer precise and detailed information.

Wonderful collection, great photography! How do you clean and polish those Ludwig metal drums? They look better than new!

Thanks drummertom!

The Starclassic Maple green sparkle is a great all-around snare.
It is warm, articulate and versatile.

Except for a little Swiffer Duster from time to time, I don't clean or polish them.
It's just that I don't picture them with too much direct lighting to avoid to show fingerprints as much as possible.

One day I'll pay you a visit. You have some great stuff in your drum shop.
Do you still have the used Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple kit in Solid Black?
