    Comments about Pearl Symphonic Snare Drum:

    This is an amazing snare. I go to Downingtown West High School and we have two of these snares. Someone knocks them over at least once a day and they don't even have a scratch on them. Very sturdy drums!

      Comments about Pearl Symphonic Snare Drum:

      I am retired, but still playing in several local concert bands as well as a couple of small groups. I don't buy lots of duplicate percussion instruments, and my snare of choice has been my Ludwig Supraphonic 14X5.5 (1964). That was until I did a rehearsal at a local college and got to play the Pearl Symphonic 6X5.5. I fell in love with this drum. It is NOT a head-banging rock snare. I waited almost 2 years until I found the right price, which was on Musician's Friends site. This was an open box in mint condition, and the description was accurate. The drum had not been tuned or set up beyond factory shipping specs. It tuned easily and the sound is just what I was looking for. It is crisp and clean, virtually no harmonic overtones, and the variety of sounds is amazing! It has 3 separate set of snares, with 3 independent throw-offs. The range of sounds is all the way from Civil War Field drum sound to crisp piccolo snare sound, and almost every combination in-between. From edge to center, there is a even, responsive snare sound. If you are looking for a snare, for a college, or professional concert setting, this is the snare to have. I have seen it in a high school setting and, honestly, unless your teacher is skilled in percussion, this may not be the snare, for high school. Something less expensive might be more appropriate, and easier to maintain.
      Also, thanks to Musician's Friend, for having Reward Points. This helped get the cost even lower than I ever expected to pay, for this snare.

        Great Snare Drum

        Comments about Pearl Symphonic Snare Drum:

        Great drum for a concert band. The 3 different kind of snares offer a great sound to add to an ensemble. The heads are fairly durable but have a great sound. Great BUY!

        Best concert snare out there!

        Comments about Pearl Symphonic Snare Drum:

        We use this snare at my high school and it sounds incredible. The drum is so versatile because of all the snare throw-offs. With just the nylon snares off, you can get such a nice "crack" that it just blows everything out of the water. We have a remo on there, and it just sounds incredible. You can have insanely quiet ghost notes on this drum, or you can just blow everybody's ears off. This drum is BY FAR the best snare out there.
