    Had a friend who loved the PDP snare drum I made ask me to turn his Yamaha Oak Custom floor tom into a snare drum also. It turned out beautiful!!!

    Very nice, Spaz! Good job on the conversion and the video.

    I've always wondered what a kit would sound like if ALL the drums had snares on them.

    Well, we all know how much we like the sound of the snares as they sympathetically vibrate with the toms and bass drum. So, why not have them make the snare sound themselves? It'd be easy to explore: just tape snares to the reso head on the other drums!
