Snares, Snares, Snares!


  • Mapex 14″ x 5,5″ (maple) – Kit matching snare (of Mapex Orion). Punchy and deep sounding snare, yet sensitive and delicate. We have recorded pop-rock to black metal with it and everyone loved it.


  • Pearl Free Floating 14″ x 8″ (maple) – Tons of balls! Features the Pearl Free Floating Shell patent. From Pearl: “Pearl’s Free Floating Snare Drums feature a patented system with no hardware attached to the 6 ply premium Maple shell. With nothing to encumber its ringing clarity, the shells are free to vibrate with unbridled response and true articulation.”


  • Tama Artstar 14″ x 6,5″ (brass) – Our very versatile metallic -but “soft” due to brass- sounding snare. Rock. Old-school.


  • Tama Artwood 14″ x 4″ (maple) – A shallow piccolo-like snare with sharp attack and short sustain.


  • Pearl Steel Shell 14″ x 6,5″ (steel) – Sounds like the “Pearl thing” for hard rock and metal.


  • WorldMax Black Brass 13″ x 7″ (brass) – A Ludwig Black Beauty replica in a 13″ format. Snappy but also “thick” due to the 7″.


  • Kirchhoff Arctic Snare 14″ x 5,5″ (acrylic) – Kit matching snare (of Kirchhoff acrylic set). Super dry, super snappy and… super loud!


  • Gabriel 14″ x 5″ (maple) – Kit matching snare (of Gabriel Mini). As clear and melodic as the rest of the kit.
