I tried Hydraulic by Evans, I would say, save your money, and get a Evans Power Center Reverse Dot or Remo Coated Ambassador or my favorite as of now, Aquarian texture Coated (si Vinci meron nito). These 3 skins are versatile enough, depende sa tuning mo. while yung hydraulics ng iba, one sided masyado, i believe di sya babagay sa ibat ibang music. Tends to choke when tight and dead when loose.

opinion ko lang.
but sir, how about Emperor X? which skin is better? dotted or not?

@ addbot ... kung naghahanap ka ng snare na mejo pasok sa budget pero panalo sa tunog i strongly recommend na bumili ka ng mapex pro  snares!! lahat yan below 9k 3 types of shells, brass, maple at steel! panalo sa tunog pasok pa sa budget! walang pag sisisi.... i got myself a 13x3.5 steel piccolo and it was a REALLY BANG!kahit stock heads pa lang ok na ok na!!! nakuha ko yun below 6k lang!!

yung Emperor X mas OK kesa sa Hydraulic, but for me, makapal pa rin. Hindi mo macocompare sa Power center. Kung may dot o wala, siguro sa user na yun. For me, alin man sa dalawa ok na. Im not a guru when it comes to sounds, un lang ang sound na comfortable ako.

As said, Aquarian ako sa ngayon. Next time try ako ng Remo Ambassador Batter at ung CS (dot). Mahal kasi Remo dito compared  sa Evans, mga 15-25 percent ata.

The Stanton Moore Drum Company of New Orleans December 1, 2008

For: Stanton Moore Drum Co.
Contact: Chris Cuevas, Spire Management, ch...@spireartists.com
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Stanton Moore 'Spirit of New Orleans' signature snare drum


New Orleans, LA. - Renowned drummer Stanton Moore is pleased to
announce the release of his long awaited signature Titanium snare
drum.  Stanton is set to unveil the drum at this year's Winter NAMM
show in Anaheim, CA.


"The whole idea started about 6 or 7 seven years ago when I met
drumsmith Ronn Dunnett for the first time and started to become
familiar with his incredible drums." said Moore. "I saw some of his
titanium drums and I was intrigued. He explained the sound
characteristics of titanium and I became very interested in the sonic
possibilities. I asked Ronn if he could make one as a 4x14. His reply
was something along the lines of ‘I’ll give it a shot.’ A few months
later Ronn presented me with the 1st prototype. I immediately fell in
love with the drum – its sound, its tone and its feel. As I was
playing to larger rooms with Galactic, I needed a drum that would be
sensitive and buttery enough for the intricate buzz roll work that I
do with some of the New Orleans second line grooves, but would also
cut through a loud funk band when I smacked a back beat. This drum had
what I was looking for. Over the years Ronn and I experimented with
various depths (the drum is now 4 .5" in depth), thickness of the
shell, depth of the snare bed, lugs, strainers, snare wires, rims,
claws and other details, but more than anything we agonized over the
badge. Finally over lunch one day I showed Ronn an image of the New
Orleans water meter cover (not sewer or man-hole, but water meter!).
The New Orleans water meter cover is one of the most beloved and
iconic images in New Orleans culture. We were very excited with the
idea of modifying the meter cover into the badge for my snare and
ultimately I feel like the badge pays homage to the city that my
fellow citizens and I are fighting to protect and rebuild.”  Although
Moore is a Gretsch endorser, he received the company's blessing for
his drum as Gretsch has no plans to offer a Titanium snare drum. "My
intentions are to maintain my great working relationship with Gretsch
while making this particular snare drum available to the public so
other drummers can enjoy this drum as much as I have."


The aesthetics of Stanton's drum were inspired by a 20’s era snare
drum that was given to him by his friend and mentor Johnny Vidacovich.
Unfortunately that drum was stolen. "It was 4x14 with tube lugs and,
single flange hoops and claws. I always dug the look and feel of that
drum.  In deciding on the look of my drum I kept recalling the drum
that Johnny had given me. I thought it would be cool to incorporate
the metal hoop and claw look of an older drum with the modern titanium
shell. I’m always trying to blend the old with the new...to modernize
tradition. Everywhere I play this drum, drummers, engineers, producers
and fans of
music alike approach me and ask me 'what is that drum?' I feel Ronn
and I have created a drum that is special and deserves to be out in
the market. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have."


The Stanton Moore Spirit of New Orleans Titanium snare drum features a
polished titanium shell, beautifully minted badge in antique pewter
finish, traditional brass tube lugs, Single flange hoops with clips or
regular triple flange hoops, the Dunnett R2 snare throw off system
with keyless snare wire release, Dunnett Hypervent I adjustable air
vent and Puresound Metrix 20 strand snare wires. The drum will be
distributed exclusively through the Bosphorus cymbal company. Price
TBA.

Mas mura ang Firecracker pero kung breads is not an issue, go for the Pork Pie bro.  Tama si number 41, poplar lang kahoy nun eh... pero nakagamit na ko ng firecracker, the sound from this little snare is more than what I expected from it.  Maraming nag bibitaw ng Li'l Squealer sa States eh, kung baga ung bitaw ng JJ dito, parang ganun ung bitaw Li'l Squealer sa kanila so kung may kamag-anak ka or kilala ka sa States, pabili ka sa mga nagpopost sa eBay or Craigslist

madami ako nakita reviews na maayos sa pork pie, konti lang naman diff ng price nla kaya it's not much of an issue. considering na din ung difference ng kahoy nla (poplar vs. maple), maple is more versatile pero interesting ung comment na parang hindi poplar ung tunog ng firecracker. has anybody done a side by side comparison or a review nung 2? maganda kasi ung option to use it as an auxiliary snare for large gigs or main snare for small jammings kaya kailangan ko malaman ung strengths and weaknesses nla.

i'm considering:

1.) material (poplar vs. maple)
2.) volume
3.) versatility
4.) hardware (in particular ung snare wires, i've heard pies are better...)

Thanks Masters! :-D

i'd go for Pork Pie, syempre i own the same snare in question.
hehehehe. i love it.
maganda ang pagkakagawa ng drums ng Pork Pie bro.
Pearl vs Pork Pie? hmmm i'd still go for Pork Pie.
reasons?
while Pearl maybe an established player i have the tendency and affinity towards new players but produces quality drums.  :-D
that's just me.

sa akin basta maganda yung tunog ng snare bakit hindi? maski gawa pa sa lawanit yan, basta ok yung sound and mukhang matibay yung hardware. trip ko yung crack and sensitivity ng porkpie. di ko pa natry yung firecracker

punta ka dito sa shop try mo yung pork pie. tamang tama kakatono ko pa lang sa kanya. kung may madadala kang firecracker mas maganda mag face off sila hehehehe. Thanks mondi for the suggestion!

Mine is PDP Chrome over steel snare 10x6. Very nice pop and very focused ang sound. May nagsabi sakin medyo muffled daw ang tunog ng 10x6 na wood snare. Mas may projection daw ang steel. It depends sa genre mo and budget mo.
