    Comments about PDP Blackout Maple Snare Drum:

    Unbelievable value for such a nice little snare. I bought this for my son to use as a popcorn snare. Aside from the generic snare writes , I can't find any faults. Fit and finish are prefect. Comes with nicely finished flat black hardware and a very useful tom mount for stand/rack mounting. The heads are fair, but we swapped for a Remo CS head anyway. The throw-off is very smooth and easily adjusted. The drum tuned up easily with no apparent abnormalities or high spots on the bearing edges. Most importantly, the little snare sounds great and just as good as many much more expensive popcorn snares I've heard. It has a pretty wide tuning range. I guess, in a pinch, you could use it as a main snare. I plan to order some Puresound wires for it at some point. Otherwise it doesn't need anything. I'm a professional guitarist, but know drums pretty, as I've had to become a drum tech for my son. I've found is pretty hard to go wrong with anything from DW or PDP.

        good snare great value

        Comments about PDP Blackout Maple Snare Drum:

        I got this snare in 13x4 for a quick poppier sound. It did exactly what i needed and i used it instead of my pearl sensitone snare for a while. For the price its one of the best you can get if your looking for a smaller shallower snare.

        Perfect side snare

        By Wardy

        from Albuquerque, NM

        Comments about PDP Blackout Maple Snare Drum:

        I'm really impressed with this little snare. I picked up the 6x10 and like the previous review stated, it's loud. Nice crack to it and it's ability to be mounted rather than using a stand saves a couple bucks. I hit the rim quite a bit so the paint will be gone in no time. It would have been nice to see the screws in black since the name suggets they should be. Can't complain though; this was a great purchase.

        Amazing Snare at Great Price

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about PDP Blackout Maple Snare Drum:

        This snare is incredable. If you are looking for a snare with great quality at a very affordable price then this is it. It has an amzing sound-it's loud, with a mid-upper range tone, and the perfect balance of crack and pop. It has great features including a wide range of tuning ans well as easy tuning. It comes with a Remo head that, while it is not the best quality, still last a while. I have the 6x10 model and although it is smaller it cuts through and sounds just right for many styles of music. Not too mention it looks great(but don't base your decision off of just that!). All-in-all it's a great snare at an amazing price and I recomend it to anyone.
