      OVERVIEW

        Comments about Pearl Limited Edition Artisan II Snare Drum:

        Should have went in store to pick out my second snare... Cost to much to send it back. The snare is quality made but the tone isn't what I expected from a wood snare. I thought the wood would have less over ring but it is actually worse than my deep metal snare. I will make it work but will have to make modifications to get the deep hard hitting punch I was hoping for.

            Comments about Pearl Limited Edition Artisan II Snare Drum:

            This snare drum is great! It is loud, has nice cut, and is SUPER warm. I recommend changing heads right away because the stock ones make the drum sound kind of thin sounding (if that makes sense). I only with I would have gotten when it was on sale for like $100.

              Comments about Pearl Limited Edition Artisan II Snare Drum:

              I took a chance on this drum because of positive reviews all around. This drum sounds absolutely great. It is warm and throaty much like the more expensive drums. The finish is quite beautiful also. If you are playing Jazz and only have a budget to spend on. GET THIS DRUM. Throw off the stock heads and you will be sounding like a pro.

              The Best Snare Ever

              Comments about Pearl Limited Edition Artisan II Snare Drum:

              I am in love with this snare! I own the Natural Burst 6.5 x 14 model and it is definitely the best snare I have ever played. It is very versatile and the throw off is easy to access. The sound compliments the beautiful finish. If you are looking for a versatile snare to allow you to play it all, this is your answer! As long as I'm playing drums, this will be my main snare.
