    I believe that most recent XC60s, like mine, are made in Volvo’s plant in Chengdu, China. That Volvo program that brings buyers to Sweden is alive and well though so I’m sure that they’ve made...

    You may need to take the family to Tianjin instead. Mine was assembled in China lol. I hear that Volvo is about to open a plant in the U.S. They’ve backed away from their much ballyhooed abandonment...

    I’m confused. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc so there will always be copper present in a brass drum.

    Sadly, the drum didn’t ship as planned. The builder ran out of tension rods for an 8” deep drum so I’m in a holding pattern, waiting for the tension rod order to arrive. Should be soon.

    Not sure Matt. Most of their snares come with the Dunnett strainer, the big clunky (but functional) one. I prefer the Trick which cost a small upcharge. I’ll be happy with whatever one they use.

    Tribute to the great Simon Phillips. Nice tone but VERY controlled. The three air vents seem to work counter to the flanged hoops, which should open up the drum. Youíd never need to dampen this drum....

    Hey Matt, I believe anything over 5mm represents a case of diminishing returns, with 3mm probably being optimal for cast bronze. Vukan’s strategy is a smart one. If someone wants to pay for 8mm and...

    I’m not aware that anyone has ever made an 8mm thick cast bronze snare. If it were even practical to make, it would likely sound like hitting an anvil.

    Sigh, if I must pick one, my Guru segmented padauk 7x14, on the right. This drum sounds so unique and musical. The Guru padauk stave on the left isnít shabby either.

    Gorgeous drum Matt, and well kept by the looks of it. Try tuning the rods closest to the snare wires a bit tighter than the rest. Takes advantage of the crimped snare beds.
