Go with the sound you want.. I personnally like The pearl Joey Jordison Model, because i want an almost marching snare sound. Here are some of the drums i think you should look at for different music types;

Rock: Pearl Ian Paice, Pearl Chad Smith, Tama Lars Ulrich, Tama Mike Portnoy
Jazz: Yamaha Steve Gadd, Yamaha Akira Jimbo
Punk: Yamaha Musashyi, Pearl Joey Jordison, Tama David Silveria
Rap/Hip Hop/ R&B/ Pop: Pearl Piccolo (13/3.5), Joey Jordison (if tuned right)
Metal: Pearl Vinnie Paul, Tama John Tempesta, Pearl Joey Jordion (depends on tuning), Tama Lars Ulrich
Country: Pearl Piccolo

These are the drums i like for these catagories. ALOT of people might not like my choices, but these are the ones i like...

After time testing my 'new' snare and playing it in different locations and musical situations i can honestly say it belongs in this thread :)
This drum is by all means a GOOD SNARE. responsive, sensitive, works at all dynamic levels, nice tuning range, awsome high end woody 'snap', amazing rimshots, and i can go on and on about it... it's just something you gotta hear to apreciate cuz even for me - reading about it just doesn't do the trick.. on top of that, there's the apearance. it looks fantastic and that is something i don't really have to point out. what you can't see in the pic is that the high gloss finish adds so much depth to the wood grain, it almost looks like a hologram (and i'm not kidding.. if you look at it in good light and turn spin it, the light reflects off of it in some way, it almost looks like it's chaning colors... the dark shades in the wood become lighter and the lighter shades become darker... it's by all meanst WIERD but awsome at the same time).
I think i'm in love :P

I was listening to some Smashing Pumpkins recently and the snare that jimmy uses, the signature one, is awesome! Great rock snare, but I don't know if it's versatile enough. I heard the supraphonic is very versatile, but some guy at my drum shop said they go for $1000 or more brand new.

You canīt go wrong with the Ludwig Supraphonic 6.5x14 but Iīd strongly recommend the Dunnett Titanium snares. I have one 6.5x13 and theyīre outstanding instruments. They do carry a big price tag though, around US$ 1000,- One other is the Beni Black Russian 6.5x14. One beauty of an instrument.

What did you listen too? His signature snare came out after the breakup (their reformed and in studio now, but thats another story)

He used a TON of different snares on their recordings 92-00 but he has somewhat 50 black beauties so i think heīs favour them.
If you want too here his signature, listen to his live performance with his own band
http://www.jimmychamberlincomplex.com/ .

Or listen to their debut "Life Begins Again", but i donīt know wich song contains the signature snare, he used the akiri jimbo sig. snare a lot too.

He is truly one of my favourite drummers/musicans ever.

Cheers!

Janka hardness estimates should not be applied to drum shells. The Janka scale rates solid wood, whereas practically all wooden drums today are made of a wood/glue composite (plywood, for lack of a nicer term).

There's a significant amount of glue in the plywood (how much, no one is sure as manufacturers don't like to talk about glue). Glue deadens sound and reduces the hardness and density of the wood.

Just me eyeballing it, I'd reduce the Janka hardness scale by 20 percent, more or less, for a plywood drum shell, owing to the presence of glue.

ok, cherub rock was recorded in 92/93. He leaved Smashing Pumkins after a incident 96, then he rejoined in 1999. they split 2000. He used a ludwig black beautie on that record I believe. Great indeed!

What recommendations for a batter/reso heads for a steal snare? What I have is an old steal snare, it came with a CB-700 kit back in the 70's. I was thinking about cleaning it up, (steel whool), and putting the right (?) heads on it. I have a Mapex M series snare now. I have the stock heads on it, they're coated. What can you all recommend?

Hey everyone, new to the forum!

Been using a Yamaha custom Anton Fig snare for a few years now, and i love it. Very versatile drum that can sing high but is FAT. Just put a new Evans HD dry batter head on, and it's a bit more crisp than b/4 with the evans genera powerstroke batter. i typically crank the batter up pretty high as well as the resonant side, i love a crisp crack with good snare response. my favorite snare sound is Carter Beauford's, but I don't have the 2 grand that it would take to get that drum. someday i want to get the yamaha recording custom, but the stage has worked well for me.

Any suggestions/comments from more experienced drummers would be appreciated; from people who are into that same type of sound for the snare. Thanks!

I think the best all around snare is the Ludwig LM-400/402 series. If you can't afford those, an Acrolite will usually do.

Other great all-around snares: Yamaha's Maple Custom or DW's USA-made standard maple shell snare (not the Pacific series).

I love my 5x14 Tama Kenny Aronoff Signature Trackmaster. It has a 1.5mm engraved brass shell plated with black nickel. It is pleasing to both the ear and the eye.

I own these snares:

1. DW Edge 14x7 in ebony finish .... by far the best snares i have ever played....it's got the crack and the body plus the projection...oh my god...superior.

2. Custom made snare 13x7 by Vaughncraft shell bubinga wood in black hardwares.....the dense thick and rich sound of Bubinga will split your ears into two...definetely one of the best 13' snare out there.

3. Premier 14x61/2 XPK snare....one of my workhorse snare for small and medium venues. It is warm and got a very nice tones to it.

4. Ddrum 14X5 snare .... also another one of my workhorse for a very small venue and jazz gigs....it is not my best snare but with careful tuning and head selection i got a decent sound out of it.

5. Custom snare 14x61/2 by Vaughncraft shell purple heart in gold hardwares...Purpleheart got a very unique sound to it....it is warm delivers alot of low end projection...best tuned low to medium.

okay...here are pics of my snares...

this is my "old reliable" pearl session series 6-1/2x14. this was the first brand new snare drum i bought with my own money (from drums etc. in lancaster, pa). i've owned this drum for at least 13 years now. i have played many gigs with this, used it on a bunch of recordings and i've broken at least 5 lugs and one snare strainer. i'll keep replacing the parts until this drum literally falls apart!

my yamaha 6x14 Anton Fig signature series snare that i bought from the music store i used to work at. this is an unbelieveable all around snare. i get such a great response from it whether tuned high, medium or low. i cracked part of the top wood hoop (you can see it in the top left of pic), but i fixed it with wood glue and filler...i also have metal hoops for this snare.

i bought this pearl 5x12 firecracker snare to go with a cocktail set that i just sold recently, but i kept the snare. it's the wood shell one and it's a great side snare to have. believe it or not, i've had this one tuned really high, really low, and still get a good sound out of it.

this is my ludwig 6x14 classic birch i bought to go with my black sparkle birch kit. i'm using this one with the Tama air ride system which i really like. it's a very loud snare and i'm still trying to find the head i like best on it.

this is a newer slingerland 5-1/2x14 studio king snare that i acquired along with a 5 pc kit of the same color. the wrap is cracked/peeling on all the drums except this one, so i'm going to eventually re-wrap the entire kit. but i think i might keep this one the way it is and use it with my ludwig maple kit.

and last but not least....my ludwig 70's 6-1/2x14 supraphonic. i got this off ebay a couple years back for $125. i don't even need to say anything about this snare...this drum speaks for itself.

5 1/2 x 14" Rogers Dyna-Sonic with regular 20-strand wires (instead of that cumbersome metal appliance that originally came with the drum) and a Remo coated bottom-dot batter.

With fresh heads on that snare has some BOOM to it!

Carter mostly uses a Dunnett 6.5x13 Titanium snare. Also a Dunnett 5.5x14 Titanium. They are around $985,- so it wonīt set you back 2k. I have one 6.5x13" myself, amazing drum. Of my 15 snare drums itīs the one I use most often.

For my first post on this forum I wanted to show off a restored/saved single ply maple Slingerland snare I found in an abandon house on the Oregon coast many years ago. It had been painted with what looked like white house paint, the heads were both broken, no snare and one of the lugs was cracked. I've stripped the paint off and lightly sanded all the marks out of the wood. From ebay I located a lug like the others and new hoops. The finish is about 20 coats of Tung Oil. The drum sounds pretty nice. Someone at a drum shop familiar with old Slingerlands said it was probably from the early 1900's

I only have Tama Rockstars ("purple haze" fade) BUT have held onto my Premier 4" Royal Ace since the 60's. It sounds amazing even though I have only one 10 strand left (takes 2 ten strand). They don't make the wires it requires anymore. I've been offered lots of cash for this sucker but I'll take it to the grave with me. Just sweet, sweet sweeet !

It is a personnal taste but so far for me the best sound achivement I had was with this one ( and I do mean it's a personnal taste).

6 1/4" x 14" x 1/2" walnut stave. It has a very very warm sound, a lot of sensitivity and good volume. I guess I'm a Walnut guy. It maybe not the nicest look for a drum but damm that thing deleivered very nice tone. Next project I'm doing is one in Bubinga and one in Zebrawood, I can wait to hear those

Just got her a few days ago. Itīs a beauty. A Bill Bruford sig snare 6x14 from maple/birch.

The drum came shipped in a box (duh!), wrapped in plastic and there was an additional bag containing what I thought was a T-shirt. It turned out to be a red velvet bag for the drum, with the sign. palette logo. Nice touch. There was another small red velvet bag containing a drum key, again; classy touch.

I started by playing the drum as it came out of the box. It was tuned high and accurately, i.e: like someone had really spent some time tuning it, same tension on every rod. What first struck me was the crack, this drum definately is able to cut through. I found the sound a bit on the hard side so I lowered the tuning a bit. I wasnīt all happy and found the sound a bit harsh and "plasticy". As I thought, it was the Evans G1 head. I changed to a Remo coated CS. It immediately warmed the sound and the CS gave it a bit more focus. Iīm all smiles. The drum is lively (triple flange hoops) and woody with lots of crack. I dialled the drum in at a medium high tuning with a very small piece of tape right by the edge. After playing around with it for an hour I found the drum favours medium to high tuning, thatīs where it really sings. Itīs sensitive (but not too sensitive), very articulate and ghostnotes are crystal clear. Struck dead center it has a strong powerfull voice, "snary" and fat, and speaks with attitude and authority. It reminded me a moment of a brass drum. I canīt wait to record with it.

The looks: for my taste this drum is very unique looking and beautifull. The workmanship is absolutely flawless and I must mention the strainer; itīs so smooth and trouble free, I absolutely love it. It didnīt back off at all, even under very heavy hitting over a period of time.

They all look good.

BTW, Unix, do you turn your stuff or have someone else do it? How big is the swing arm on the lathe? Or how big (diameter) of a drum can you make?
Thanx.

A Pearl Chad Smith signature snare drum...a lovely snare drum indeed. And I'm not even that much of a fan of his drumming.
A really great, versatile snare drum.
