I just got the DDrum S4 Maple snare in Blue Burst a few days ago & used in in practice last night. I put a Remo Powerstroke 3 with center dot on top & Remo Ambassador snare side on bottom. It still rings a bit for me, but has a great sound regardless. It has the needed crack, but without just taking over the entire sound of the band's performance. I have the Yamaha 5.5"X14" Kabuto snare. It's a great snare, but it is way too loud for the music I play with my band. I used Remo O-Rings & everything else to lower the volume of my Kabuto & nothing worked. So I got this maple snare drum & let me tell you, this snare drum is frickin' amazing! It's got a great depth to it with an amazing pop that I've never heard before. It sounds great tuned at any level. Highly recommend this snare to anyone on a budget. The paint job is phenominal. The blue burst finish looks like the ocean when it goes from dark blue to seafoam green. It's darker than the picture shows, but when the sun hits it just right it looks like the picture. I do recomend replacing the washers with nylon or metal cause they used very cheap plastic washers that are uneven & worn out. That's my only complaint is the washers. Other than that, I am very happy with my snare.

Yo, I purchased this snare maybe a month ago and sold it two days after I got it. The hardware is cheap the lugs and tension rods arent durable, the die cast hoops are great but the shell is poorly constructed. Screws inside the shell were loose and no matter how I tuned I didnt get the sound I was looking for. I ended up purchasing a Pearl Omar Hakim Signature Series Snare and I am highly satisfied with this model as my third snare.

Wow

By sge806

from Undisclosed

For the price, you can't beat this snare. The finishes are stunning and the tone is amazing. The hardware is pretty solid and after a head change, this mother is ready to rock. Do yourself a favor and come get yourself one.

A steal for the price...

By Usmdrummer

I bought the "Blackburst" finish and it's probably the nicest snare drum I have and I have about 10 of them, all different brands. From the shell finish, to the die cast hoops and quality throw off, this a great looking drum. It also sounds as good as it looks. I tuned mine tight and it gets a great high-end pop with the body of the wood deep shell. I was very impressed the first time I played it as well as our sound tech. Pick your color and order this drum today!

ddrum S4 Maple Snare Drum

By PiscNJMusician

from NJ

See all my reviews

Good quality over all. The snare throw off is nice, heavy duty; better then most. The heads are better than average that it comes with. I would have liked a heavier snare. The hoops are heavy, could be heavier, but for the price, no complaints; though was getting that odd, either to tight or to loose lug when tuning; though with a heavier Evans coated two ply head was fine. Really can't say anything bad about it, and for the price, well, it's got the tone I was after. Would've loved an 14x8 even better but why spend the extra cash and for what? ... Regards - hope that helps.

I needed a new snare drum for my Pulse set because the stock snare was a piece. I wanted to buy a snare that would sound great for all types of music. So far this snare has been great. I highly recommend it to any kind of drummer except maybe jazz. I would also recommend buying new heads. I bought remo for it the first day. now its a great snare.

Great Snare

By WSUdrummer

from Oak Park, MI

I got one of these with my ddrum limited edition kit. I figured it would sound ok, but I was very wrong the drum sounds great it cuts through with that high crack but also retains a lot of body. The throw off is simple in design but functions great it is very smooth. The blue sparkle finish on mine was also very nice looking. If you change the heads it improves the sound SO MUCH. I will mainly use this snare for Gospel & R&B but it can be tuned to get a variety of sounds, this is definitely a great choice in the bank for buck category BUY IT!

Love This Snare

By Ddrummer-L2mYt

from San Jose, Ca

I bought it second hand and must admit that I love this snare, I have a diablo punx set black with red hardware and I must say this is a good touch to it, if you ask me. I am going to put my money towards more Ddrum accessories, I love Ddrum.

Amazing

By nandoman

Picked this up as a scratch & dent...put on an Emperor coated on top and an Ambassador snare side with some 20-strand Puresound snares and WOW! This drum kicks seriously. The only thing in the stock head s and wires leave something to be desired...with the mods it is an incredible snare!!!! Cast hoops and quality hardware! More than I imagined....worked seamlessly with my vintage Slingerland set - sounds like a $300 - $400 snare IMHO. VERY sensitive for a deep snare. - killer!

A fantastic, affordable snare!

By skulled

from Edmonton, AB

I purchased the Red Ashburst snare and love it! It gives a great, fat tone with an amazing attack (thanks to the die cast hoops) while still maintaining an impressive sensitivity. Add into that the visual appeal of an amazing laqcer finish and the black nickel plated hardware, and you have one great snare drum!

Not Great, but Worth the $$$

By josh_the_drummer

from Little Rock, AR

I've had this snare for a few months now and have been pretty happy. Build materials are low to mid-grade, but it looks high end from a distance, which helps! It holds it's tuning pretty well, BUT doesn't really have a "sweet spot" and the overall tone is lacking somewhat. For the money it's a decent primary snare and a good one to have on hand for a backup. And as an aside, ALWAYS CHANGE THE FACTORY HEADS!!!!

I have owned alot of snares in my time but when I found myself snareless with an upcoming gig I picked up the Blueburst version and I must say...BUY ONE NOW!! Great tuning range, beautiful finish, nice hardware and throwoff. Throw on a new evan sd dry and this thing sings! Buy 2 .....they are cheap! I mean inexpensive.

Amazing Snare Drum

By The Clamp

from West Chester, PA

See all my reviews

I just bought the snare in red, and not only does it look amazing, but it sounds amazing too. I still have the original drum head on and it sounds amazing. The sound has a nice crack to it, but it still sounds powerful. Not to mention the amazing price. I would recommend this to anyone.

Great Drum!

By thunderbirdbass

I bought this drum around 7 months ago. I just went for some new snare cord, but I couldn't pass up the chance to replace my crappy stock steel snare, I have the purple fade. The top head is fine for playing for about a month, then a change is in order, but stock heads are stock heads, it's an amazing drum, and it'll be coming with me when I get a new set, that's for sure.

The cheapest way to upgrade your kit!

By Rob in OKC

from Oklahoma City

See all my reviews

If you're playing a basic beginner kit, the cheapest way to upgrade is with this wonderful snare. I got it and it has a good tuning range, from big and fat, to tight and bright. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better sounding drum for less than twice the cash.

Incredible Snare!!!!!

By Shibbymeister

from Los Angeles, Ca

See all my reviews

I love this drum, its just incredible. As soon as I got it I took it to my kit and all it needed was a bit tightening and it was ready to go! It was incredibly the sound it gave! It was just unexpected I thought I was getting a crappy snare but it turned out to be an awesome drum! It was far better than expected, everything you would expect from a hugely expensive drum you can get with this very affordable drum. ddrum is now my drum company they have gained my trust! GET THIS DRUM NOW!!

Its alright

By thunderhorse

from Texas

See all my reviews

So, I have to say that this snare looks amazing! Die cast hoops mixed with great finishes is a win win! But, it comes with horrible snares and good for nothing heads. Those can all be replaced. The real problem is the throw off. Had this for a couple of months and the internal plastic within the throw off split right down the middle. Well, ddrum quality loses again.

I bought this snare today on a sort of impulse buy and took it home, put some new heads on it (Evans Genera dry & 300 hazy) It tuned up very easily and sounds great. THe quality is great and especialy for the price. Id say buy it if ur thinking about it.

What A Sound!!!!!!!!

By Andres Bussatti

from Arecibo, PR

When I first open the box I was amaze. The color was super amazing It was like dream about it, when I tune both heads the first hit was very poping, fat and cutting. This is the first time buy a 13'' snare ddrum has a good way to built drums

Buy It!

I got it and it sounds and looks f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c! Wide variety of tunings with my G2 coated and I haven't even tried a different head or triple-flanged hoops yet. I've been playing 42 years and have had many snares including DW and the other major brands. This is one of, if not THE, best ever. To top it off, I got an unbelievable deal.
