Have seen Frankie quite a bit in the last couple of months, and it was great to see him again when the Bang Your Head Tour rolled through Illinois. Frankie did a demo of the 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 15 for me and after sound check, decided to use it for the show. It was uncoated, and outfitted with a Remo 15″ CS Ambassador Black Dot & Hazy. Interesting experiment because Frankie primarily plays 6.5 depth snares live. The results…Were great. Will have live samples of the drum from the show and sound check on my site late Summer, and will post. Huge sound from this drum from one of The Masters. Thanks once again Frankie.
