In fact,Ill bet that I am a musician on thousands of the very songs you are digging through.
I just come from a much different place than you in a musical sense,and Im quite proud of it.
Thats cool. I respect that. If you would just keep it humble like you just did,there be much more positivity around here. Im sure you are good at what you do,but you dont always have to remind everyone. No disrespect but you dont have to be the best to still have fun with it. I admit Im so new that I am better with the technical stuff than making music cause I never done it before a year ago. Right now I suck at it,but i still love trying to figure it out.

@skiroy: uh... I've recorded a lot of drums. Basically, the diameter is going to determine how low the pitch goes, and the length will determine the length of the sustain. Very long drums will often sound lower even with a smaller diaphragm because they accentuate the low end part of the sound.
No doubt. I know there are mad variables. I figure it out. But I was looking for a maple snare hard but I found a Rogers dynasonic snare.Sounds like a break beat record. What maple snares you like for cheap?I like em mad deep like 14 x 8. Dpends some can go lower sounding without being as deep. But what you think of a catalina maple.
