Can I get some opinions on this snare drum,

Does it sound too "wet" with the three air vents ?

Is it versatile ?

How does it compare to other maples ?

How does it compare to metal 6.5 " x 14" snares ?

What about the rim shots ?


Thanks

The snare is LOUD well i mean LOUD... the 3 air vents help to let the shell "breath" .....

Is it versatile ? well i wouldnt use it while playing a jazz gig .. its definatly a snare for Guitar dominated music ... FOR ROCK / HARDROCK ... were talking about eric singers sig snare!!.... if ud like to hear the snare ,make sure to listen to the new RAMONES tribute cd which contains a track called "remember rockn roll radio" eric is playing on that one .. HE USED HIS SIG SNARE ON THIS TRACK

That's kickin' for sure!

I only use my MRX snare for LOUD gigs and outdoor shows.

It's my favorite sounding snare. I've changed all my snare drums to Puresound snares EXCEPT the MRX. It sounds KILLER KILLER KILLER. <----- Even our guitar player says it's "In your face."

I've ordered another Pearl snare to use in quieter situations.

I'd say the Tama is louder with a totally different, metal ringy tone type sound.

I've never heard the ES........from the "double MRX" I gathered the Bell to be louder.

I do know without hearing it for myself the ES has fat wood tone that is different from the Bell which I have heard.

I prefer the wood tone myself.

Ah man, what a perfect time for me to answer this. I just got the ES a little over a week ago. It replaced my stock Export. OOOh man, this baby is beautiful. I love the color. The sound is explosive. Mine has a kind of a ring to it, especially with the Evans ST head and 300 hazy combo. I kinda like this, but I can't tell whether I like it with more ring or less. But oh yeah, definatly loud. Killer rimshots and cross-stick sounds. I love it.:D

:eek: Did you vent it yourself? What does it sound like, well - in more detail if you will.

I want a ES snare, I almost purchased one the other day. It would have been my first real snare... I have a Penncrest hehe
The reason I didn't get it is because I want something not as bright for my first real snare. But don't get me wrong, I do like it and will probably buy one real soon.

Hmmm..... When you start getting up in ply's on a wood
shell snare it starts to rival the volume of a metal snare.
After about the 8th ply on a snare (pearl snare, that is)
I'd go with a metal snare. The difference that i see between
the two (or hear) is the amount of ring that comes from
them with the metal snare having the more of the two.
Just my 1.5cents.
