Does anyone have an opinion or own a Slingerland Gene Krua 14X5 Cob Sound King? I have found one advertised, at 200, good, bad? Any opinion would be appreciated.

Tom

That Garibaldi snare is a killer! I work at a drum shop and have had that drum in twice. One new and one well loved. Both were great.

I have one snare I don't know a lot about. Please, if anyone could help.

It's a real old & cheap Japan SUPREME sn. 14x5 Gold flake - six lug, stick saver hoops (wfl esc). But the mystery is the Badge. All of the drums like this I have seen say Lido Supreme. Some font, same style of badge...just with out the lido mention.
It's a great snare by the way - a pain in the #$% to tune, but a great crack to it.

Anyone?

lol, im asking the same question, but im looking for a snare drum that would deliver sharp, crisp sounds suitable for technique practice, as well as a durable shell,(which would be better, a maple/birch/steel shell?) and im leaning more towards pearl and dw brands, possibly yamaha as well, and costs around and below 700/600 us dollars.
btw, anyone ever heard of sonor snare drums? are they any good?

I didn't have a problem with any lugs on the rest of my drums--like stuff going out at a gig--but I figured what the heck, try it on the whole thing.
I KNEW if they worked cool on the snare, I'd just end up doing the kit anyway :P.

Not only do they work great, but I have not had to TOUCH the tuning on ANY drum since I got them tuned and tweeked to my liking.

I put them on about 3 weeks ago, and have done a bunch of playing on the drums at home, and one gig (pack up, transport, set up, play the show, tear down, transport, set up again...) so far.

I put the Tight Screws on already played in heads, (almost ready to be changed before I put them on) and they are really keeping the drums sounding great.

Tight Screws are a really great product, and I'm glad I spent the dough to get them on the whole kit.

I'm not saying that others should do their whole kit, but if there's a lug or two that give you a problem, they will work great and solve your troubles.
I'm just nuts, and will do crazy stuff like putting them on the whole kit....but then again, I don't think I'll have to do much re-tuning anymore.....
is this the new tuning system i read that was produced about 2/3 months ago?

A DW will set you back over $1000AUD, most likely about $1400AUD new for a maple 14".

Go have a chat to the guys at Drumtek in Northcoate, they're the best in Melbourne. Failing that, I also like Revolver in Prahan.

For that sort of money, maybe check out the Mapex Black Panter series and see what you like.

I have a custom Jarrah stave being made now by a Guy called Paul Warry who owns Metro Drums in Qld; they do the exotic shells & finishes for Sleishman. Thats setting me back a little over your budget, but its a snare I can't see myself ever getting rid of.

Yeah, they can be a bit cheaper. However I've had a couple of bad experiences with them (with Gary Hyde and the staff at the Flemington store), namely where I had a faulty Zildjian cymbal that they said they would NOT replace (cracked after about an hour of use with 5As in a blues context). Zildjian customer support said is was a straight-ahead swap at the place I from Hydes, and eventually Gary agreed. It still took them about 12 weeks to send me the new one after that, and it wasn't even anything special, just a basic ZXTi 16" crash (piece-of-sh*t by the way).

I like Drumtek and Revolver, both have great service. Steve at Revolver even sends me cards!

Billy Hydes really seems like the Guitar Centre of Australia.

ouuucchhhhh...i'm heading to the one at blackburn though so im not sure how they would be.
geez, thats pretty crap service. and yes i agree with you on drumtek and revolver, i bought my
roland v set from drumtek, and when i checked out allan's in the city theyre 200 more but the same brand! pretty awesome to know revolver drums take a photo of whoever buys a drumkit and sticks it up on the wall, i was staggered to see such a whole bunch of 'em when i passed by

I'm looking for a Chad Smith type snare, I'am thinking about getting his signature but what would be another snare that sounds similar to this. Also what are your thoughts on the Craviotto Limited Edition Birds Eye Maple and Ludwig Black Beauty?

Just bought a new brass on brass black beauty (brass die casts and tubes with the millenium throw off) from the states and its got to be the most complete snare I've ever played. It tuned right across the spectrum and sounded great. Really pleased I got one now. Tried a chad smith snare in a shop about a year back and it in no way compared to the sound of this B/B

Probably posted numerous times already, but Ludwig Supraphonic is my current snare, and I gotta say, I'm not buying another one anymore. :D

Yes, too harsh, I tend to agree, although a lot of great jazz drummers have used and still do use steel snare drums. But I love my DW Craviato solid-shell maple 5"x14". It cranks and it speaks. It whispers and it shouts. A beautiful, well-made instrument, and probably the last snare drum I'll ever buy. Not cheap, but well worth it.

I'm looking for a new snare drum to add to my DW custom maple kit. I like the DW snare (14x6.5) that I got with it, but I'm looking for a more high-pitched 'poppy' sound and also a smaller drum (particularly 14x5 or 13x5-6). I play rim shots a lot and I play in a band that's mainly influenced by Incubus. I was looking into the Chad Smith signature snare. Anyone played or heard any snare drums with the similar sound to the Chad Smith signature?

14x6.5 Metro Drums jarrah stave, 30 degee edges, Trick strainer, chrome 2.3mm hoops and tube lugs, gloss finish...



Best snare I've heard (and/or played) to date. It has a great amount of body, tone, fantastic articulation, power, killer rim-shots, and looks fantastic. The pictures really don't do it justice at all. Incredibly versatile, just play with tuning and snare tension. I'm in love.

I'll second the Craviotto. I was lucky enough to come across a Timeless Timber Lake Superior snare on eBay and fortunate enough to be able to afford it. What a wonderful drum. Much more affordable was the 6 X 13 Ludwig Maple snare I got off eBay. It's a great sounding drum and I bet the 5 X 14's are just as sweet for jazz.

I bought this Premier Signia Marquis snare drum last week. I like it - looks good sounds good. The retailer didn't have any information on it. I've been on the net looking at the Premier forums and even looked at all the catalogues on Drumarchive but can't see information on this particular snare (I can only see Signia snares - no Signia Marquis snares there). But I was able to find some info on it for now:

Signia Marquis were made from about 1997 until about 2002.
The shell is 6mm/5ply North American Maple with no support rings. Marquis have die-cast hoops. (mine has the die-cast hoops).

The normal Signias were 5mm/5ply maple with support rings and triple flanged hoops.
Both types used the same lugs,snare strainers and holders.

It was made in the Premier factory in Leicester, England.
And the factory may not have kept records of the serial numbers.

Hello All

One thing i would say is to not try snares out in a drum shop...difficult i know, but the amount of resonance you get from other drums makes it very difficult to tell (unless they have a sound proof room which is empty).

Best way is go to some smallish venues (both miked up and not) and listen and look to see what other guys are playing (and how). Like the sound of a snare at a gig, go and ask the guy or girl/animal what he/she/it is using.

hope that helps

Olly

p.s have a listen to my orange county 10 ply maple 14x7 no frills snare.

please help!!!
right... i have a day or two to decide over 3 snares.... i can't get to any of them to listen to them 1st hand........... aaargh!
so...
does anyone have a review for the yamaha oak custom 14x7 or a musashi 13x6.5. or a pork pie curly maple 14x6.
i don't know any of them and i can find reviews for the musashi and the custom but not the pork pie.
i'm a rock/blues/funk drummer with a catalina maple kit tuned low, i've never heard any of these snares before and would like an honest opinion if anyone has the time.
ideally i'd like a versatile snare that when open has some real projection and is sensitive on ghost shots but can be tightened to give some funky push snap type thing.
i've read the thread and agree that its best to look/listen/check out / compare what's out there but some times things get thrown at you (i'm not complaining!) and you need some sound advice....please
many thanks

ideally i'd like a versatile snare that when open has some real projection and is sensitive on ghost shots but can be tightened to give some funky push snap type thing.
i've read the thread and agree that its best to look/listen/check out / compare what's out there but some times things get thrown at you (i'm not complaining!) and you need some sound advice....please
many thanks
hey there fragglerock,

i haven't tried out any of the snares you have to decide on but i thought i might be of assistance recommending the snare that i have recently bought.

that being said since i am also a rock/blues/funk drummer myself i really enjoy a responsive snare and punchysnare sound with some overtone to it. the tama artwood custom super maple snare satisfied me a great deal. it is super responsive and the 7 ply maple shell makes it a very snappy toned snare with great volume and power.

it also helps generate the coolest nuances from explosive beats to the quietest ghost notes and it is worth every cent that i have spent on it. can't wait to try it out in a recording session that i haven't got the chance to do so. i'm sure it would also work out super fine considering the acoustic taste of its sound.

it's price is about $260 in the internet but unfortunately i had to pay $370 in a local musicstore but even so, i am so happy and i don't regret. you can check out its reviews and see for yourself that not a single drummer has posted a bad review to it as far as i am concerned. it's worth a try if you could have the chance and have not made a decision yet.

cheers!
