    Another vote for old Prestige Session Selects (or a set of Visions, the birch ones are great). They sound amazing and go for very little money. And in general, I'd keep an eye out for a used kit....

    Wow, that's gorgeous. I have to say, it wouldn't even occur to me to rewrap this. Other hardware yes, but I'd leave that wrap on at all costs. But that's just me. Beautiful drum anyways, would love...
  4. My first Pearl snare in about 6 years!

    I owned one of these around 2004/05 and loved it, and for some reason I sold it, and have regretted it ever since. So I've been keeping an eye out for one and got this at a reasonable price on Ebay...

    That sucks man :(
    My band have an agent and the promoters/venues sign contracts for every gig, and they're still a pain to deal with all too regularly. At least once a month I ask myself if I can...

    Yeah, my reply was just to give you my experience, in case you can identify with the possibility of having overly tight arches. That can be a real problem, and is probably not that uncommon for...

    And regarding shoes - this can definitely be a factor. I only play in socks now, and that has really helped!

    Be careful with strengthening exercises. I had plantar fasciitis a few years back and the doctor recommended strengthening exercises because it's usually caused by weak arches. It can however also be...

    Quite possibly - in which case I'm just lucky that I've never had a problem with one. The only strainer that's suddenly completely broken on me for no reason was the fancy Yamaha one they used on all...

    Went to see Man when they reunited with Terry Williams when I was a teenager, as I was a massive Williams fan having grown up on Dire Straits. Loved seeing him play, hated the band ;)

    Oh wow, that's gorgeous. Mahogany drums are just a good idea I reckon... Used to have a Mahogany Classic Limited Edition snare, really wish I'd kept it.

    Wow that's stunning!

    I have to be honest (and I know a lot of people will disagree with me here), I like both P85 and P86 strainers. The P85 is super basic, but that's exactly what I like about...

    Aw man that sucks, i've had a snare stolen out of a bandmate's car and lost one in a fire and it's just awful.

    Yeah - used to have a 400, I really liked it in tiny venues and you could tell it...

    I was a self-taught golfer for years. I was kind of ok, but not particularly good, and I improved very slowly and didn't really know how to improve, or what to work on. I just kept playing, and I...

    Yeah I agree that the hardware is pretty basic. It does fundamentally work though, especially if you take good care of it, and the bottom line for me is that Ludwig snares just SOUND fantastic.

    If you already know a player well enough to invite them to play at a public gig without rehearsal, that's not really an audition!? If you know them that well, just invite them to join the band. If...

    Yeah it's funny, after about 12 years of playing only wood snares, I'm now tending back towards metal snares.
    That said, I love both my wood snares, and my Ludwig classic maple is a beast!

  24. What's the big deal with Ludwig snares!!??

    OH WAIT! It's that they're amazing!! :p

    Did my clickbait headline pull you in though?

    Lol. What kind of band auditions potential drummers at a gig. Everything about that 'audition' sounds awful, and they sound like a complete bunch of a******s. Not worth the hassle.
