I enjoyed reading “A Weekend In Austin With Stanton Moore” by Dave Constantin on DrumMagaine.com. When I came to the description of his gear set up, I was surprised that Santon’s 4.5 x 14 Gretsch Signature Birdsedy Maple Snare is not listed. Instead, his wooden snare is a 4.5 x 14 Craviotto Solid Bird’s Eye Maple Snare. So why is Stanton not using his own? Same size as the Craviotto. Same wood? I have never played either snare so I can’t judge either. Perhaps someone here knows why Stanton does not use his own Gretsch Singature Snare.
