Nice little pop out of a nice little drum. Know what you're buying it for because it is what it is and it does what it does. Don't except much more. It is a side snare; an accent snare - a pop... Nice high "snare off" sound too for use as a timbale or high crack. I also incorporated it into a cocktail kit for small venues where I only get a corner. And, I use it as a back-up snare on gigs instead of just taking an extra drum head (no one wants to wait for you to change your head). But, it is what it is, and I had to muffle the overtones down quite a bit to get a good sound out of it. Once that's done, it's a screamer. Probably sound a little better with an Ambassador, but I haven't gone there yet.

          Used as a side snare, open for timbale sound, tunes high. Sounds amazing. Reggae use, small but huge sounds.

                Makes a great addition to your kit! Really good pop. Replaced batter head with a Remo coated controlled sound and it really improved the drums tone And crack.

                  I use this primarily when I'm recording demos. Played with brushes or sticks, it's got a nice pitch that sits well in a mix and is very responsive. I love this little drum because I can play it while it's sitting on my lap! Just like I can pick up a guitar and lay down a quick rhythm track, I can scoop this snare up and be ready to add some great-sounding percussion in less time than it takes to tell it.

                            Very low quality, anemic sound. It's essentially a toy, and priced accordingly. Works okay as a side drum on the practice kit, but it won't be leaving the basement. If I had to do it again, I'd spend a bit more on a better drum, such as the Gretsch Silver Series I use with my larger main kit.

                              I love it! It has a great pop to it, and it has a very great tone, too. I love using it in church. It sounds off and is really sensitive. I think it is a great snare for an exceptional price, especially for those who like that marching snare-style sound too it. The snares are kind of hard to take off, but other than that I would recommend it to anyone who loves 10 inch snares.

                                I was quite pleased when I heard how much pop this small snare can add to my Roland V-drums. Its small diameter makes it very easy to find placement for.
