Genre is determined by the drummer not the snare.
Ask yourself this: If you had to pick one would you choose metal or wood?
Then ask yourself this: If you had to pick a depth would you go with a shallow or deeper snare?
After you narrow that down, go from there.
I looked at every guitar center within a 1 and a half drive and the only drum I found was the supra.
Would you recommend narrowing it down to material? because one is aluminum, another is chrome over brass and another is straight brass.
I just noticed that all three of your threads relate to various snares though. And most of them, you don't seem to have been able to get a stick to. I just worry that you're falling into the trap of looking to "purchase via internet consensus". It's never the best option. You're never gonna get all players to agree on a single choice. In turn that just makes you second guess yourself and your choices.......as your threads are starting to show........and you tend to end up more confused than when you began.
Actually hitting the things at least gives you the ability to let your own ear decide.
Well yeah, after you decided wood or metal, then which wood or which metal is the next obvious question. Then depth, depth is a biggie.
And let's not forget the badge.
Not really, as you probably know, that's a thing around here, and I'm just being stupid.
I'll lay money that you'd do well with a Supra, given you never mentioned any wood type, coupled with the fact that you mentioned sensitive, articulate, and crisp, with a nice pop...Heck, Supras invented the pop.
Plus the fact that there's one close by is kind of serendipitous too, wouldn't you agree? Forty billion Supra users (or whatever the hell the number is) can't be wrong, right?
Ya, I am more deciding between the dyna and supra then the mapex. Does the supra ring like the cob dyna also Would the aluminum or cob supra fit my description?
