  • Anton Fig Snare Drum

    Hey all,

    I'm planning to get a Yamaha Anton Fig Snare for christmas, I've read a lot of good things about it. So I was wondering - have any of you owned one this snare? Do you like them? Advantages? Disadvantages? At the moment I have a pearl forum with the standard snare so this is quite a big upgrade and I want to keep good care of it and get the best possible sound from it. Any tips?

    I have tryed to use the search function, but it always gives me a "Fatal Error". Any info is welcomed!

    Cheers,
    Tim

    never played it myself, but i've seen bands use it live and it sounds fantastic. nice, warm, open, and not too deep. just the right combo of body and crack.

          I had an Anton Fig for about a year and it's an excellent drum. I only sold it when I got my Craviotto Unlimited 6.5 x 14. You'll really like the drum. It's a 7 mm shell with plenty of crack but the wood hoops really help preserve a nice woody, fat sound and provide an unbelievable cross-sticking and rimshot. The hardware is all top notch and the lugs are really unique. The 6 x 14 size is a nice fit for about any size kit.

          Be sure and post some pics when you get the new goods.

                  my favorite snare of all that I own.

                  Very versatile tuning throughout the range of the drum- Unlike some snares that can sound great at a certain sweet spot, but don't sound so hot outside of that very narrow tuning... I found the Fig snare sounds quite good at all kinds of tunings. Low and fat, or higher and tight- it all seems to sound good out of that drum.

                  When you search, do it for "anton" and you'll come up with results....

                          My church I play at had 3 of them at one time.
                          A guest drummer that played came and BROKE the top wood hope.
                          The other one was bought be a drummer who plays weekly.
                          The third is a " musical snare " ( no pun intended ). It's just a spare, goes from building to building or studio or whatever. It was triple flanged hoops on it.

                          It is a VERY mellow snare.
                          No matter how you tune it, just about wrinkle, or cranking it, it always has a TON of high end crack. Not much body. It feels super good to play on though, especially with the wood hoops.

                            My local Sam Ash has that snare in stock. Every time I go there I have to play it. It has a great feel due to the wood hoops and yes, very sensitive. One of these days...................
