I was at Tonehouse Studios today to give the snares a little TLC: they had been heavily used in the last few weeks since Tonehouse opened its doors. Many a drummer has had fun on them and many a hard-hitting gig held at the venue.
I noted that the drummers tended to crank the original heads (Evans HD Dry) really tight. I think they were trying to get more attack out of the snares than the HD Dry really allowed. The HD Dry is a really thick and phat sounding head which I had put on for studio tracking purposes.
As an experiment, I went with Aquarian’s Hi Energy head on the Aluminium snare and the New Orleans Special on the Myrtle stave snare. Now the snares sound a lot more open and have much more of the attack and high frequencies audible. Those were easily tamed with a little dampening for a fatter tone when required, making this a far more versatile set up.
We listen. We do this because we want our drummers to have the best experience and the best sound possible in our little venue. We do this because we are Tonehouse Studios. Make a booking today and #playpantheon everybody!

Back when we first started our social media in 2012.
We had already been operating for two years by then, going door to door with two snare drums in tow, trying to convince people of this crazy idea of custom drums, made in Singapore.
