    Hmm, that's a GEN-X? From what I understand, GEN-X were maple/birch drums that are part of the Artist series(kits). I didn't know they made snares.

    Anyway, I'm sure it's a great snare.

    I've not played one, but I love the Premier Artist/Premier series, they are great sounding drums. I've heard the Premier Maple in person, and they are fantastic drums - I'd assume the GenX ones carry on the good sounds!

    Yes and no
    Gen X is maple / birch but it's a part of the Premier Series. And yes they make snares too.

    The Gen-X kits cost a fortune, theres been one in a music shop n dublin (taht SUCK at selling drums) its been there for about 3 yeasrs now. but i tapped the 10" tom when i was in there the last day and even from the tap it sounded amazing.

    I owned a full GenX kit fora while. It was was very good. The drums were dryer and had a more agressive sound than most modern maple drums, similar to Trick's aluminum entries. I really like the toms and BD, but felt the snare was lacking something, it was Ok but no spark for me. Quality was good but the BD did start to delaminate and required repair in 2 locations. The lugs/strainer were good but nothing special....

    The Gen-X drums used to be their own series but are now part of the Premier series which can be ordered in 3 shell configurations (Maple, Birch or Gen-X).
    Gen-X snares are also available as part of the Modern Classic snare drum line.
