    Comments about Pearl Modern Utility Maple Snare Drum:

    I own about 6 different snare drums This is my first 13". I took this drum out of the box, tuned it up just by feel and tone alone, and MAN! What a great sounding crack! The drum has a great "sweet spot" and has some ring when played on the outer edge of the drum. (Which I like). The 13" diameter also means you can get your hats and bass drum a little tighter if needed. I'm an open handed left player, and I appreciate the extra room on my left side for a closer hi hat placement. Well worth the $$$! You will not be disappointed !

        Comments about Pearl Modern Utility Maple Snare Drum:

        The snare drum that I received came with defective rims top and bottom I don't know if it's quality control or B stock, I just don't know, I had to remove the rims from my other snare drum to Put on this snare drum, but I kept the drum anyway because the Shell, the lugs, the tension rods, the throw off, the butt end are well-made and the drum sounds fantastic. A few days later I purchased the 5 x 13 version of the same drum and it was perfect and it sound great I believe these snare drums are the best deal for the money.
