    [..YouTube..] Great playing, I like the tuning at 0:56. I think you should do a poll after you showcase all your snare drums, and see which one the general public likes. Thus far, I like the X Ray the most. This snare I like the least of what I heard so far.
    You look much better with the weight loss btw. I’ve lost 40 lbs, and have 50 more to go. You’ve inspired me to keep losing more weight!

  7. [..YouTube..] @SONORSQ2guy That’s a really good idea! I should set that up on my site or something afterwards :)

    And I’m pumped I could inspire you to a healthier lifestyle! I can whole heartedly say I’m never going back to what I was!

  21. [..YouTube..] Bro every snare has sounded phenomenal, almost makes me wanna ship my snare to you.

  22. [..YouTube..] @geoff1424 :D !!

  23. [..YouTube..] @GertuCapur Thanks a lot! :)

  24. aaronedgardrum says:

    @GertuCapur Thanks a lot! :)

  25. [..YouTube..] @BurnThePope0514 haha I’ll send it back all tuned up!

    Although, I’m doing a video on tuning snares really soon to go with a magazine article on just that which is coming out I’m pretty sure at the end of this month or beginning of January in Drums Etc.

    So that’ll have an overview of how I do it generally (of course all drums are different)

    And also my winning combination! The heads and wires that to me at least, every single time I’ve put them on a drum it just straight up rules!

  26. [..YouTube..] @BurnThePope0514 The winning combo : Evans G1 Coated batter, Hazy 300 snare side, Puresoun Super 30’s and for a rock kinda snare two 1/4 pieces of moongel set about an inch from the edge placed as as if the middle 50% of a full piece had just been cut out. (Over the E and S vertically, in the Evans logo is pretty close)

    [..YouTube..] Sounds cool but how did you “modify” it? Did you do anything special to it? Thanks.

    Thanks.

  29. [..YouTube..] @mark8016 Thanks! :) The only thing “Stock” about this drum are the lugs!

    Hoops : Sonor German Die Cast monsters
    Throwoff : Sonor SQ2
    Butt plate : Sonor Delite
    Shell : Burned with acid by Mr. Ronn Dunnett to give it that really dark earthy look.

    The lugs were already Delite/Artist series. Everything else about the drum I modded.

  34. [..YouTube..] @mark8016 No Sir, the batter is a German Sonor stock head (which doesn’t come on this drum) Honestly, the only reason that’s on there is I ran out of G1’s. I have a rack of heads and to my surprise there weren’t any there when I was tracking this guy. The Stock german head sounds very similar though. Snare side is a Hazy 300 and the wires are Puresound Super 30’s

    [..YouTube..] @aaronedgardrum Very Cool. I also dig Evans Drum Heads, so I like to use the Power Center Reverse Dot because sometimes I play with brushes as well. Btw….you need to sweat some more for that t-shirt to work. Rim shot anyone?

  74. [..YouTube..] Making a 14×8 snare with triple flanged hoops was a wrong move on Sonors part. Die-casts are necessary on almost every snare actually, but when it’s that deep, you’re begging for trouble.

  76. [..YouTube..] @ShittyMcPoopyBalls Well both of my SQ2 14×8’s I have triple flanged on and they sound pretty sexy :P

    But in all honesty, I think it was in an effort to keep the price down. Regular die cast hoops would be +$100 or so and with the German ones I have on you’re looking at like $300-$400 more in price

  97. rockdahaus says:

    [..YouTube..] tze tze… i played a whole song of my band with brushes on this thing. My music is quit dynamic, quiet heavy stuff and loads off psychodelic/low action music. ;-) I put S-Hoops on it. Makes it more less ring and deeper in tone than the triple flanged hoop. But maybe i will give die-cast a try. Cool vids btw!

  101. [..YouTube..] Hey man! The head on top is a stock German Sonor head, which isn’t the head that comes with it, I just had it kickin’ around. It sounds almost identical to a coated G1, the bottom is a Hazy 300 with Puresound Super 30’s. The snare reso is medium-tight and the batter I’ve been changing throughout the video. With/without moongel :)

    There’s a video linked in the description about how I tune snare drums if you want

  103. [..YouTube..] Rad man! That sounds awesome! I JUST had a guy asking me about S-Hoops on this drum haha, it’s in my most recent video (the S-Hoops top and bottom Phil Rudd vid) it’s the featured video on my channel, you should chime in and tell him about it!

    I can’t believe Danny left Sonor drums

  115. electrizer says:

    As much as I love Carey’s playing and Tool and Sonor (I own an SQ2), this
    is a horrible snare… Rattly, dull, only for hard hitters IMO
