View Full Version : i also need a snare reccomendation

ok, i am looking for something VERY different than most people look for, so thats why i am asking here.

i want a snare that is loud, ringy, and for the most part, uncontrollable. loud ghosts are a must... but for the most part, i want it to have an intameable, dry sound. right now all ive seen with these qualities are the vented snares... any suggestions?

hold up. ringy and intameably dry at the same time? you have to pick one of those sounds! The vented snares are loud and dry without much ring. is that what you're really looking for? Well, a 6 1/2" depth will help you get lots of body and a thick shell will kick up the volume. Have you considered the Eric Singer model? 6 1/2" 10-ply maple with 3 vent holes? If you really meant that you want something ringy, I think a brass free-floater in the 6 1/2" size would give you a LOT of ring.

well... i mean ringy like, say, chad sexton's snare - he uses a vented snare, and has it dry and ringy... but under control

Just get a 5.5x14 Steel snare. No muffling and high tuning will give you a very ringy uncontrolable tone. I play one like that at school.

If you want to go cheep, do what i did. Just for kicks i got an old 1992 Export snare out of the closet, put a remo ambassador on top and stock head on bottom, tuned it tight and its exactly what you would want, but not quite as dry.

i bought a sonor force 3001 snare from www.2112online.com and it sounds just like chad sextons from 311. very dry with a little bit of ring. it was only $125

I think the 7"x12" maple soprano is right for you.Very loud and ringy.It could also be dry with little muffling.
The 5.5"x13" steel sensitone is loud sensitive and ringy.When they are tuned tight they can be dry sounging.
Both drums are very unique sounding and can add a whole new set of colors to your band and your style.

the 7x12 as far as i heard sounds like the snare in "Two Princess" by Spin Doctors..

as far as Ive heard, concerning shell materials, steel is about the ringiest (is that a word?)material you can get. and you said you want loud as well, so maybe you want a deep shell as well. I Think pearl makes a steel power piccolo or something of that nature, and its a 5x13. that might do real good.

it would most likely be most ringy or else say it rings the most. Something like that

Get an Eric Singer model like someone said earlier
or a Tico Tories model and put a Evans genera
dry on the batter head.

2112 was easy to work with for me, but what do u mean by response snizare?
