Thanks to Sean for his work on fixing my new DW copper snare. Thankfully, at last night’s gig the throw off worked flawlessly.
Now I can honestly say that this new snare kicks f’n ass. It is quite possibly even MORE responsive than my old brass Ludwig (RIP). I’m a happy snare camper now.
Last night’s gig was great because my bass player who moved to Portland was in town to play. It’s SO much better when your bass player of 20+ years is there.
I bought a new video camera on the way to the gig and taped the show so we can give a DVD to any fill-in’s. That will be useful.
