  • Acrylic Snares

    Lets discuss these clear jokers. I've always wanted one in my arsenal, just haven't had the right one size wise come around, and now 1 has. Any thoughts on them? I've owned numerous maple and steel snares, but just curious if anyone has tried them with different edges. This one is supposed to have a rolled edge to change the tone.. But I've heard a couple people say acrylic snares are boxy, nothing more. I'm not afraid to try something, just curious of opinions of you guys that use them. My desired snare is 13x6-7, I don't know what large, if any differences there would be compared to a 14 snare

      I have two acrylic snares and love them both, they are loud and cutting, and have a tone unlike any other, well IMO. I like them myself and apparently so do others as my Crush 7 x 14 acrylic snare has way more hits than any other snare video I posted at that time. Don't listen to people, go try one out for yourself if you can.

        Cool deal. Only one I ever remember hearing live is Eric Singer and it sounded good... But that was compressed gated and eq'd to death I'm sure in that scale of a concert.

        Hell I may just buy it, if I don't like it ill sell it... Or just look at it. Lol

          I have a 14x5 vistalite. I've only briefly played it, but I played a PDP 14x5 acrylic snare a few years ago which sounded awesome. I need to try mine out more but I've also heard they're one-trick ponies.

                You got that rite!!! I've even thought about selling the Masterworks to get another in 13x6.5... But I I haven't decided on another ref spec or get a 13" in ES specs.

                    Yeah I usually throw a half a moongel on it when I play. Plenty of 13 x 7 Crush on the net for about 180.
