Mine is a Tama Warlord Masai 14x6" Snare drum.

This thing sounds great no matter how you tune it, and has the best sounding rim click I've heard. Heads wise I use an Evans ST Dry on top and a Hazy 300 on the bottom. Great dynamic range with these heads.

I'll be sure to upload some pictures of the snare by itself soon.

Default Re: show me your "WORKHORSE" snare

Mine is a Pearl Sensitone that I bought around 1995. I wanted an inexpensive but good sounding metal snare that I could use anywhere and not worry about. It soon became my favorite snare drum.

"How," I thought, "can this one sound so much better than all these expensive snare drums?"

I've used it for many kinds of music, live and in the studio, and it's always "been there." Amazing.

Here's mine, a Black Panther 14x6 Maple, I didn't really get on with the Evans head pictured so I've gone back to a Remo Ambassador.

This is an oldish picture of my workhorse snare. Tis a Black panther 14" x 5.5" Maple. Usually use it with an Emperor-X batter. Love the sound of this thing. Looking at buying a Velvetone soon!

Ludwig Supraphonic, 5" x 14", Made on 1 June 1971.

Chrome over Ludalloy. Chrome flaked away, so it's wrapped with some purple sparkle. I've added the P-86 strainer and die cast hoops. Batter head is Aquarian Hi-Energy. Later this summer, I'm going to re-re-finish it and add tube lugs.

This drum can do anything.

No picture until I get to our rehearsal room, but its a 14" x 6.5" brass Pearl Sensitone (very similar to the one pictured above.

I alternate that with an Omar Hakim signature.

This just became mine, I used it for the last 3 gigs as my main snare. It cost me $40 for the top wood hoop plus the drum heads and puresound wires. It is remnants of 3 shell cut offs, all 3 are (were?) maple. If I knew it was going to sound this good, I would of took more time to make it look good, was basically a throw together of old parts.

Here's mine, a Tama Stewart Copeland signature snare. 5x14 COB and one die-cast hoop - sounds an awful lot like a classic Rogers Dyna-Sonic from back in the day....

Don't have any decent pics of my actual snare, but my main snare is a lovely 14x6.5 Ludwig Black Beauty from 2010 (Keystone badge). I've replaced the stock snares (because they were rubbish) with Puresound Custom, and for heads I use a Remo Emperor-X over an Ambassador Snare Side.

I have a 1968 Ludwig Supraphonic (LM400). It looks really old and kinda crapy because its pitting like mad, but it still sounds beautiful.

This. I love this drum. I got it free w/ a set of Pearl Session Customs. I paid 1200 USD for the drums, this snare sells for like 550 now because it's discontinued. It's the only one I use, for everything. It's an Eric Singer Signature snare drum. Not that I'm an Eric Singer fanboy, all I know is he drums for Kiss. But the snare is 10 plys (about an inch thick) of maple. It really speaks nicely. It looks like a silver sparkle wrapped drum but it's actually a lacquered drum with metalflakes in the paint. Mmmm maple woodiness through and through.

Oh my god, this is just pure porn. So many beautiful snares here!!!

I got this snare just two weeks ago.. I had another steel snare that I used now and then but after getting this thing I really don't wanna play it anymore so I'm selling it, haha.

Mapex Birch Deluxe 14"x6,5". Early 1990's (pre-Black Panther era). Double strainer, diecast hoops. Nice stuff. ;)

Cheers.

I use these the most. I have a few other snare drums but these are my favorites that I own.
The Brady is just beautiful sounding (I wish my playing complimented it) and the Ludwig is so versatile.

It is a 6.5 x 14 Jarrah and is a block/stave drum. Thank you for the kind compliment.

I've always liked the way this snare looked and always wondered how loud it was due to the 10 ply. Is it a drastic difference when comparing rim shot volume to a thinner snare?

Just want to say that I'm really enjoying this thread. I love Workhorse gear of any variety. Great idea Starclassic.

ATM though I have no snare to contribute.. I have three new snares, 2 custom jobs, but I'm just not gigging enough to name a clear "workhorse" out of the bunch.

Keep up with the pics though guys. This thread is making me want to gig more so I can take my snares for a thorough test drive.

That looks deeper than 7, I think close up photos of drums do this, they make 8 lug drums look like 6 luggers, etc. I am going to experiment with using the zoom a bit to see if this helps to correct theis optical illusion.

And your throw off looks crooked, a little excited putting it together?

I took it apart to refinish it and noticed that when I saw the photo. It has since been straightened.

Hi Larry, the double strainer... well.. it's just that, a double strainer. Haha. :)
I mean, it's not the ultimate accesory neither does wonders for the sound.. you simply can adjust the snare tension from both sides, gives you a little more room for experimentation. It also makes it a bit easier to set the snares perfectly centered, but just that.

Cheers.

Jeremy, you just made me want to get me one of these ludwig's, the hand hammering, the depth, the tube lugs, I love it all. Oops I just noticed the throw off, I just put one of these on my stave and nope dont like it, but the rest of the snare is making Donny's pants tight.

I just bought a new P-86 to replace the original ( I bought the drum used a few years ago). It's much smoother and works great. I'm using the Noble and Cooley cam action snares on this drum and they sound terrific.

Try the bay, you may snag a good deal on one.

Yeah some good deals on snares to be had, but any ordering is on hold for me until our Canada post strike ends. Federal government: Pay the workers not the welfares!
