I second that emotionI get a very different vibe from different size/depth/brand bass drums, and I’m fussy about the ride because it really sets the mood.... but for snares it really can be whatever is handy. I LIKE certain ones better, but if I hit it and it goes *SNARE*, I’m not very particular. I feel in the minority on this.
It’s not from lack of nice ones, it’s just that I hit almost any of them and it’s “Sounds cool let’s rock” and off I go.
Same here!Yes! 79' 6 1/2×14 Mach engraved BB
Funny story with this snare...After i assembled it,installed heads and such it sounded terrible...Thin and brittle..I was bummed out because I thought maybe I had exceeded the useful rigidity of a drum shell(this is 9.5mm of steel) and in turn made a useless,toneless snare drum..But easy on the eyes..ha
Well I've played excellent snare drums with each of those varieties of hoops, but on this particular snare drum I've only used the triple flanged hoops that it came with - 2.3mm NOB - and now the Adrian Kirchlers. Both sounded great but Adrian's opened the drum up just a bit (surprisingly) and the solidity of the rim shots are amazing! And aesthetically there's just no comparison.Being some who has not the experience to get to know single flanged hoops, have you compared them to triple, wood, or die cast?
Thanks. I kinda took a 20+ year hiatus from percussion and have recently returned. Never realized till now it’s how much I enjoyed playing!!Welcome to the forum, scpdpdrummer!
I had one of those hammered Pacifics years ago. Traded it along with some other gear to Sam Adato in SF for some Sonors.
Mine was nowhere near as sweet and tricked as yours.
