i saw on your first snare you used a NICKLEWORKS, do you prefer them over trick t/o? and why?

i've never used the trick throws so i couldn't compare. i love the nickleworks and have really never felt like i needed something 'better' than that. i'm not opposed to trying the trick ones, but i haven't really had the opportunity.

if i'm doing a snare for someone, i recommend the nickleworks because i've used them. i've offered the trick to a few people but they feel more comfortable dropping the money on something they know i've used and can stand behind.

yeah, i have used both, but i feel that nickelworks cant get the wires tight enough, but i have used both, im actually selling a snare with a NW on it right now, but i prefer to use trick, they have the same mounting holes anyway, i would try one for your next snare
