Re: Sonor Snare - Do they hold there value?

This is a topic with no ending. Until you have experienced multiple snare drums you wont be happy with anything. Try to keep a couple of drums long enough to evaluate and get used to. You will find...

Re: Vintage Drums Comparison

Orions..or Saturns?

Not much experience here so are these 2 different animals, or very similar? Both high end and well built, but the Orions seem to cost so much more..are they worth it?

Re: SONOR 8 pc Phonic Series Rosewood in/out 1975 Centennial RARE & EXCELLENT!

Very odd market these days, but if someone advertises a price that's in your opinion a little [or a lot] higher than normal, so be it. No one is twisting your arm to buy, but if you do you must have...

Does it have to match?

A lot of players are very much into the appearance of their kits one way or another. Is it important for YOU to play with a matching snare drum to your kit[s]?

Re: Acquarian hi- frequency

That's all good info, thanks. I have many snare drums but I think I,ll keep this one for my gospel/worship trio where that extra sensitivity is really needed. I don't lay into it like other styles.
