Re: Snare wires not disengaging low enough

Try a plastic strap instead of cord.
Could be a design flaw or bad build.
Had that issue with a Carl Palmer Venus.
Ludwig admitted to a bad design.

Re: Help Identifying a Possible Fibes Snare

Re: Fibes Crystalite snare hoop questions.

And manually configure on your router or network card ,it works.
I tried Google DNS and the DNS my ISP...

Fibes Crystalite snare hoop questions.

Just bought a Fibes Farmingdale snare and noticed the bottom snare hoop only had one extended drop gate.
So is this an original hoop or a different one from say Slingerland or Ludwig?
