I'm going to get a new snare in the future and will go and test some out. Before I do though, can anyone describe what a copper snare sounds like? I've been thinking about the Pearl FC-1435/C. I love the sound of the brass version and it's close to the sound I'm looking for but would prefer one with a slightly darker, rounded sound.

Just recently purchased a Yamaha Anton Fig Signature Snare, 14 X 6 maple with maple hoops.

Great sounding snare, plenty of crack and great rim sound as well.

Solid black gloss and the natural maple hoops make it a great looking drum as well.

I bought a worldmax black hawg 6.5 x 14, to try out, and I love the thing. The strainer leaves alot to be desired. I even left the stock heads on it! I'm gonna keep this one.

I also love the high-pitched sound of a snare drum, I have both top and bottom tuned tight, but never crank it, and i also have the snare pulled across tightly, I love the funky sound I get from it. I got the Pearl Chad Smith Signature and it sounds amazing and is VERY affordable, and also the batter head is where you're going to tell the difference in terms of the high-pitched "snap" sound you get out of it.

Try cranking the bottom head and tightening the snare wires just tight enough so that there's no residual buzz. See what you think about that.

personly im into big deep snares but thats because i like the tone and sensitivity if u hear john bohnam or if u have ever seen him then u will reilise in moby dick he gets a hihat sound from it and dnt forget uning the two heads makes a difference as well as the types of head. the same also gos for wires i have a 14by6 premier diminion mimor made i think 10 years ago and it has 12 wires and ive tuned it way up hight like bohnam did that gives amazingly incredible sensitvity.

I have a Pearl 13x3 steel snare that for years I used as a main snare, with such a beautifully high pitched crack that it made your ears bleed. I found the trick with metal shells is the right batter head, personal experience has led me to twin ply (coated or uncoated) hydraulic/pinstripe whatever you want to call them, as they tend to resonate less. I've also found that tuning metal shells quite high also helps, for me anyway, again it's all about the sound you're after. a tiny little 13x3 isn't to everybody's taste, but you can also squeeze the balls out of a deeper snare for a nice tight punchy sound.

I have recently aquired a pearl 14x3.5 maple free floater with die cast hoops, which was the best move I have ever made as it sits in perfectly with my BLX kit and my little steel sits to the side as an effects/auxilliary snare

Allright guys, I was looking at this Yamaha Brass snare today, and it was 14x6.5. Has anyone play a 13" one? Im trying to figure out which one has more of a pop on it.

Also, does anyone know where to order a Keller shell with an exotic wood outer ply other than Conaway? Im doing some snare work, and this summer im thinkin about assembling a snare.

Edit: How woould wood hoops affect the sound of a brass snare?

Tama Aluminium PAL240 14"x4"

I really love this drum - is very dynamic, plays well softly, and BRILLIANTLY loudly! Great value as well - I managed to pic one up for 150! Comes up very well on recordings, and is just so fun to play. Only disadvantage is that it may change your playing - my snare fills are a little too excessive and my toms are starting to collect dust because it is such fun to whack . . .

Highly reccomended for anyone that wants a quality snare drum without having to fork out 200 plus . . .

I had one of those little Pearls - warm, strong, snappy sound. I used it to replace an old Ludwig chrome 5 by 14. I didn't tell anyone in the band I got a new snare and as soon as I started playing everyone turned their heads and immediately noticed the snappier snare sound.

I have ditched the Pearl now for a Spirit solid shell 13 by 4 snare. It's just like the Pearl, only stronger and snappier. There is a bigger range in the Spirit compared to the edge and center, so the Spirit is more expressive. It also produces ear-impaling rim shots. But the Pearl will always have a special place in my heart and is a terrific drum for the money.

I'm currently really looking into the Lars signature series. 14x6.5. 3mm diamond plated steel. Looks like it would really crack and work perfectly for the intense metal that I play.
I would just hope that it sounds good with my kit. It is $500. I'm also looking into Pearl Brass free floater 14x6.5 and a Firecracker. I really want to make a great choice and my band plays music like Pantera and Anthrax ETC. Any suggestions by anyone? Also with a snare that suits metal very well and is very loud like this, would I have to tune all 6 toms a lot lower to sound better with the snare?

@ Metalthrasher- Vinnie Paul has a sig snare coming out too. All maple, and its only $270. Not bad at all for a 14x8 maple snare.

That copper one should cut through about anything. In fact, you could also look at the bell brass models if you REALLY need to be heard. Tama had a bell brass snare with titanium hoops on it a couple years back, and it came with a hearing warning.

Thanks and yeah I was checking out Vinnie's snare and it only comes in a snakeskin color which would not go with my kit at all. Anyway I'm really starting to like Lars' snare and it's got good reviews and the drummer in my dads band said that it has really great sound and is easy to tune. I mean I don't want to spend $500, but I guess I will.


There's Vinnie's snare in that snakeskin color and that is the only option that I know of as far as color goes.

Who cares? Just get it re wrapped. Even with the cost of a wrap, itll be cheaper than the Lars one.

I love Maple Snares.

The Pearl Reference snare is on the top of my list.
Then the black panther birdseye maple snare is a favorite.
Then my favortist (yeah i know, not a word) is the Dennis Chambers snare.

The lugs on the Lars snare look better and it looks like it would be easier to tune. Anyway I will try to check out both when I go to The Drum Pad if they have both. I'll see what sounds better. That is when I can cough up $500 just incase.

I know this goes against what alot of people here have said BUT...

I play in a punk band, we also go into some reggae, jazz, metal and funk. I use a Pearl Piccolo, its only 13" by 3" i think but it gets an awesome sound oh yeah its also maple! but the thing is I really like the full bodied, tight, punchy sound, which I can get from my Piccolo.

I just either put an O ring on or off depending on what sound suits the song best!

I am also eyeing off a Gretsch Maple Snare, 12" by 5.5"
My motivation behind buying this is that it will give me the tight, punchy-ness of the piccolo but because it is deeper it will bring in a bit more bottom end which I feel I need for alot of stuff. I also think it will sound sweet for recording!

What does everyone else think of this snare Im contemplating buying?

I use a pork pie snare. 7x13 and its great!
My suggestion to you would be , be very very picky and go out and have fun. Bang away on every snare you find and dont worry too much about the brand name. In my opinion if your looking for a good pop sound stick with pork pie's or a smaller diameter snare

I am tempted by the 'looks' of the Sonor Artists Series Cottonwood Satin Snare.
Has anyone tried this ?
It's a 14x6 9ply - looks great - put how does it sound ? ?

My alternatives are the DW Collectors Maple 14x5 10 ply
and Pearl Masters 14 x 5.5 thinner 4 ply.

My music style is blues type stuff .

Any thoughts ?
Thanks !

I have the Pearl chad smith signature snare and i love it to bits. Its great for funk / rock, that sort of stuff and has a real crack to it. blistering rimshots. I love it to bits as it suits my style of playing. its not too versatile and wont work too well in all styles, but if you play in styles such as funk, rock, rnb, gospel etc then definetly go for it. I have a coated Evans genera g1 on top and a clear remo ambasodor on the resonant, all cranked up and it sounds ace.
