Pearl Soprano Snare drum

By phlcollison

from Omaha, Nebraska

Comments about Pearl 8-Ply Maple Soprano Snare Drum:

This is a fantastic snare drum! It sounds incredible, looks incredible, and has a wide tuning range. I was skeptical about the size of it at first. I didnt think a snare with a 12" diameter would be so versital. I think it comes from the 7" depth. I love the thick 8 ply shell. this drum has a lot of high end crack that really cuts through anything but also has plenty of body to go with it. I took of some points on features and quality because of the throw off, also because i have heard replacement hoops are hard to find, but mainly because of the throw off. It is really small and after playing on it for about half of a song, the strainer would all the way loose. I dont know if i just got a defective one or what but i replaced it with a dw mag throw off and the everything works fine now. I was really suprised at how low you can tune this drum. The low tunings sound just as good as the high tunings as well. Something interesting I noticed about this drum is it's volume. Because of it's small size, it isnt overly loud. I own/have owned quite a few snare drums of all different materials (tama starclassic babinga, Mapex black panther maple, ludwig black magic, Dw vlt, mapex m birch, etc) and i usually rotate through some of them when i play at church. I noticed when i got back around to playing this one again, It didnt seem as loud as the others when i would lay into it as hard as i could. Which is nice for the type of room we have church in. Holds about 300 people tops and the drums can be overwhelming in at times in a room of that size. So its nice to have a drum that i can just let loose on and people wont be losing their hearing! Maple is always been a stunning looking wood, especially when its finished. The finish on this drum is BEAUTIFUL!! unless you dont like orange. The orange is a lot brighter than the picture shows. Look up other pictures online to get a more accurate look.

Lot's of

By david_watts

from Flint, MI

Comments about Pearl 8-Ply Maple Soprano Snare Drum:

Before getting this snare drum, I owned a Chad Smith, a Ludwig 14x8 super-sensative, and an old Ludwig 14" marching snare. None had the distinct "pop" sound that I was looking for. I checked out probably 20 other drums first, and I couldn't find the sound that I was looking for. Then, as much as I hated the thought of playing a 12" snare drum, I gave it a chance. All I can say now is that I would not trade it for a drum of triple the price, and even though I was ploanning on using it as a second snare drum, it is now my main snare. I guess the best way to describe the sound is just that it has the best, most punchy and warm, full "pop" that any of the drums I have ever used or heard have. You have to hear it if you are looking for a new snare drum. The highest recommendation I have ever given any instrument.

One Of The Best

By DrummerboyCJizzle

from Marrero, LA

Comments about Pearl 8-Ply Maple Soprano Snare Drum:

I played this snare in a church before my boy let me use it and I fell in love with first time. When I say its the best snare I have I my collection it is the best. The 8-plys give it the snap and pop tp it and plus its all maple. I purchase one about a month ago and I'm so happy. I'm telling it will be the best snare drum in your collection.

Extremely Versatile

By DRUMdot

from State College, PA

Comments about Pearl 8-Ply Maple Soprano Snare Drum:

I've been using this snare for 4 years and it manages to amaze me everytime i play it! Responsive enough to use in coffee house setting, but packs ample punch and crack to fill a stadium. I'm ALWAYS complimented on this snare. I own 5, but this one is my baby. BUY IT!

Tremendous range.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Pearl 8-Ply Maple Soprano Snare Drum:

Hands down the most versatile drum in my collection. Not only is the tuning range tremendous, but the range of volumes that make this drum sing is amazing. If you like a drum with good drum sounds all over the head then this drum is for you. This drum accepts a variety of heads well. Even a 2 ply head like a coated G2 don't seem to bother it much.This drum is a must have if you do acoustic shows.It has enough punch to hold down a rock band too. In fact I was watching an opening band at an outdoor St. Patrick's day party in 2003 and I noticed the snare drum sounded really good. I looked up, saw the finish, picked my way through the crowd, and there it was. This same 12x7 drum. It sounded fat. I was amazed. Beautiful finish. Liquid Amber #114. I've had one for 2 years and it is starting to darken up a little bit. I get lots of compliments on it. It is one of the finest instruments I own.The only bad points I can think of are:1. You may need a snare stand that goes way low. Ludwig has a nice one. I think Pearl has some adapters you can put on the basket of most stands. Both the depth of the drum, and the fact that you have to draw the basket way up to hold a "small" 12" diameter add up to a tall snare.2. Beware the cross sticking at lower head tensions. Of course it depends on the stick to some degree. At moderate to high head tensions the cross sticking and rim shots sound great. Even brushes work well on this drum. 'nuff said.

Killer Snare

By Roz WAlker-aj2ju

from Baltimore,MD

See all my reviews

Comments about Pearl 8-Ply Maple Soprano Snare Drum:

I got this snare drum used. It came with an evans g2 head on it, and this snare still kill. I really want a g1 but they didn't have a 12" head, that would make it sound more crisp. almost all the church drummer in Baltimore who can afford it, have this snare drum. Pearl didn't know but he made this for 21 centrury church. If you're looking for an good snare for church this is the one, you will never sell it.

Deep, full-bodied, cutting snare

By J03R3D

from Baltimore, Md

Comments about Pearl 8-Ply Maple Soprano Snare Drum:

This snare is amazing. It is one of the very few I have ever played that have the ability to cut through any situation. Due to its odd size, the warmth and body of maple are fully present while it still maintains the pop of a 12 in. Tuning variations bring forth both a high pitched, slightly ringy reggae sound, all the way down to a chest thumping punch. The throw off is nothing outstanding, but is very smooth and functional. The burnt orange color leaves much to be desired, but the amazing spectrum of sound proves to over compinsate any stylistic short-commings.
