Rogersoholic,
I didn't buy that snare, but it sold for around $650 and it was one of those thin Gretsch shell Dynas that Bruce mentioned, that could have been one of the last ones before they went to the 2nd Generation COB shell with the dual bead.

I ended up buying a frame at an open auction on Ebay, that frame had been on a 1965 Ludwig snare drum that the owner inherited. I paid $212 and I was pleased to find one, that is currently on my 6 1/2" COB Dyna #1664 - just 2 away from yours Rogersoholic!

It has the barrel at the one end instead of the arch. Ken's stuff is good, clean and original - there is actually 2 holes, if you look close at the edge of the black rubber guard you can see the black string threaded through it.




What is the black string for in version 2?

The black elastics were discontinued in about 1968. They had been put in place to keep the snare frame from rattling during certain playing conditions, as suggested by an endorser.

Re: Dynasonic Snare Frames


I just picked up a COB Dynasonic #42743. I think that puts it around 1973-74 (please correct me). It has a three piece bottom hoop, butt end snare frame and no "D" on the strainer. From what I've been reading, version 4 is the correct snare frame.

When did the "D" cease on the strainer?
Could this be a transitional drum betweeen the old style and the Big R, or is this a drum made from parts?

Thanks.

Re: Dynasonic Snare Frames


I have a gut frame question. I have a 10x14 wood Dyna with gut snares and one with metal covered gut snares but both individually mounted snare wires/guts that have screws that hold the snares to the frame. I want to replace the 10x14 shell with a [sign in to see URL] wood shell. Can the gut frames be converted to hold the regular metal snares like on the smaller Dynas? I have one complete 10x14 wood shelled marcher that I have on a shelf. Beautiful silver glitter wrap, looks great on the shelf. I also have a second 10x14 Dyna that would be great to change out the shell to make a player but the gut snares wouldn't work for rock and roll. Also, with 20 tom type lugs will the individual lugs fit on a 6.5 shell? Thanks for the expert input.

Re: Dynasonic Snare Frames


No. The rim is also different and is specially made for this rail. I think {but not sure} that you may be able to use it tho if you changed out the outside guard and frame protector. I will check my Dynas. I actually like the sound of the gut for some applications. Dynas came with both wire and gut. This gut rail is the rarest of all the rails. Gut are usually for concert type. I will post some pics soon.

Re: Dynasonic Snare Frames


Does anyone hear have any opinions as to functionality of these snare frames?

I own two and since i tend not to use them with my Dynas (they do sound great but i go through wires a fair bit and also the extra bulk is sometimes not worth it) I am thinking of parting with one of them.

One of them is definitely a Big R version (top one on the picture in this thread).

The other I think is the one directly below that though it could possibly be the third one down.

Any thoughts/opinions are welcomed. I'm not really concerned with using the right one historically, just whichever one is least likely to malfunction/most user friendly etc.

Re: Dynasonic Snare Frames


The reason you're breaking snares is because you're over tightening the adjuster. Never tighten more than finger tight (never use a screwdriver). With the frame off the drum have the snares loose and floppy and just tighten the adjuster until when you strum the snare wires you have an even musical tone. With the snares adjusted correctly put the frame on the drum and be sure you have it centered. Put the throw to on and have it loose, then tighten the throw until the snares just kiss the head. If you have a little snare buzz just tighten the adjuster slowly until the buzz goes away. Use new snares for this. Old snares will not be as effective and will not tighten evenly.
A correctly tuned Dyna with the snare frame on will sound wayyyyyy better than one without the frame. COB Dynas have no snare beds and wood Dyna's have very, very slight beds. The drums are designed to sound best with the frames.

Re: Dynasonic Snare Frames


+1 to what Jack said.

My 1977 Dynasonic has its original wires. It was my only snare drum for 25 years. And it got played a lot.

take the time to read out the instructions on tuning up a dynasonic.

Thanks Jack,
 
Until I learned how to tune the snares on my Dyna I broke wires all the time. It's many, many years now since I last broke a wire.
There is a very good sticky section on tuning a Dyna right in this [sign in to see URL] it out!
