SKF NOTE: This is another conversation from one back-up cassette I sometimes used at Modern Drummer for short phone interviews, such as getting answers to reader questions from drummers.
I had interviewed Max Weinberg for his April 1982 cover story. On this later tape, Max is clearly answering a MD reader question on how Max tunes his snare, or how he gets his snare sound. There’s probably an edited version of Max’s answer in an MD “Ask a Pro” column, but I’ve forgotten the specific question.
You’ll hear passing reference to a “Russ” using Ambassador drum heads, who is Russ Kunkel. Max and I had interviewed Russ for Max’s book, The Big Beat.
