    @aaronedgardrum im psyched. maybe i can get my 14×7 steel snare to sound
    like this hahah! out of curiosity, do you use any kind of EQ or compression
    on these videos?

  2. [..YouTube..] You like your deep Snare Drums, don’t ya Aaron? Haha

  3. [..YouTube..] @Rockband2stream haha I do! But I’m going in order of size from 14×8 – 10×2. There’s a lot of shallow ones in there as well!

  4. [..YouTube..] All of these snare drums are awesome so far man! I’m planning on picking up a Danny Carey signature snare soon but it’s over $600 so I might feel guilty afterwards since I’m usually broke 😛

    [..YouTube..] That snare sounds awesome, I liked all the tuning’s you used. Thus far, I favor the X Ray and Heavy Maple SQ 2. I can’t wait to hear more.

    [..YouTube..] That snare sounds great! seems like when you whack it lightly it has a shimmer, and when you whack it with some force, it gets deeper! Sweet!

  12. [..YouTube..] @SONORSQ2guy Thanks man! I recorded seven videos today and I’m doing at least another six tomorrow. You can expect a snare video a day until I’m done. 🙂

  15. [..YouTube..] @frwyguy Totally! I was VERY happily surprised with this drum! It’s German beech assembled in China. I figured, it’s a Chinese one, how good can it be? Well, honestly, I LOVE this drum!

  18. [..YouTube..] @aaronedgardrum To clarify so nobody happens to take that wrong. Sonor has a German factory where all their high end stuff comes from and the Chinese factory is where the entry – semi-pro lines are made. That was in NO way a comment against Chinese anything. Just from which factory it came from. lol

    [..YouTube..] Hi Aaron, do you reckon an Ian Paice signature would be suitable for metal? Like, deathcore- Blasting, quick fills etc. It has a nice crack but I like the ring I get from the steel shell.

  23. [..YouTube..] @Oli4drums Hey man! I’m not super familiar with all the Pearl stuff any more as I haven’t played Pearl in many years. But judging from the specs a 14×6.5 steel should do the trick as long as ou crank it up a bit. Maybe opting for some Die Cast hoops would put it even more in the vein of a deathcore drum. 🙂

  34. [..YouTube..] @Ankylophobia lol good point. There’s only 100 of them. BUT It’s a video on HOW to tune your snare, so maybe there’s some little tidbits in there that could get YOUR snare sounding like that 😉

    It’s about 12 minutes long and is meant as a bonus for an article I did for Drums Etc magazine that’s out in January. I’m probably going to upload it tonight though.

  75. [..YouTube..] @milesmetkodrums27 It’s a modified piece, it’s a 400 series sonor mini boom stand’s top portion, with the tilter replaced with a basic arm “BA-MA” which gives you a 3/8″ thread. Which isn’t standard for most mics so you need to have the 3/8-5/8 converter which is easy to find. Those three pieces plus a rack clamp of course makes for a slick, sexy lookin’ and wickedly sturdy mic arm. 🙂

    Goddamit’ man! That fisrt tuning it’s just killer. I love your videos. I got a 14×7 Odery maple snare (brazilian brand) and haven’t been able to tune it to my likes. Also have a puresound super-30, but I just cannot get it to a good tension. Maybe it’s the snare bed…do you have any tips to tune really low? Thanks in advance

    He tuned the lugs closest to him (the lugs where he rimshots) down all the way, but not the rest
