This snare has a very deep sound, but still has a good amount of crack. Plays somewhat like a marching snare. VERY dynamic. Played soft it is woody sounding but the snares are surprisingly sensative. Played loud the backbeat is THICK. Then you hit the rimshot and it comes alive. Has some ring to it but it is minimal if you hit the middle of the head. Tunes up quickly and the stock heads are pretty good. Finish is much better than pictures. Email me with questions. I had a lot of trouble finding info about this drum and bought with my gut.
For those of you who may think that this snare is ridiculously big... It is hahaha, but its not overpowering or too much of anything in any way. I personally bought it to compliment the deep sizes of my drum set.I tuned it pretty high top get that pop and rebound that a piccolo gets and once I hit it, I realized that you really get a lot of depth out of this thing, not like that fat low deep sound I thought I would get, but a mid-ranged pitch of a crack and depth. Its really versatile and its actually pretty loud, I would say as loud as a metal snare.This thing is pretty much my primary snare now, switched it with my pearl ultracast, which also happens to be a great snare. The only difference between the two is that the ultracast has about twice the sensitivity and snare response than this snare, but hey, im in a metal band, who the hell is gonna listen to my ghost notes and soft strokes?
