  • Deep And Dark And Low

    I am currantly playing a Dennis Chambers snare...love it.. but looking for somthing a little different.
    I am looking for somthing that is not harsh. A deep low end sound. Not a lot of sharp or crack to it.
    The only thing I could come up with is either a Tama 8x14 or maybe the 6.5x14 MHX.
    ANY SUGGESTIONS????????????????????/

    Put a Jack DeJohnette Signature Aquarian head on your Chambers . Head selection and snare wire selection will solve your problem. Check out Puresound Products for wires to your liking. http://www.puresoundpercussion.com/home.htm

      go for an 8x14. if you want a darker sound, try a solid shell snare, or maybe an oak snare. or if you really wanted to get fancy, you could get the tama bubinga or a bubinga stave snare. those things are dark like no other.

          If you want deep,dark and Low.. Look no further than the 14x6 DW Cast Bronze.. I have one and it has all those quality's and more.. They are a bit spendy but WELL worth it..

              the MHX would be a step in the right direction

                    African Mahogany is supposed to give about the deepest tone. If you can find anything built from that, you'll have that deep thudd. Of course, the 8" depth will also get you down into the nether world. Choose a head that can maintain good tone with a little lower tuning. If you do all that, it just may be TOO deep. Still, those are my ideas on how to get what you're after. Good luck! Let us know what works out for you.

                      Exactly, the omar hakim sounds like just what you are looking for, it is a dark sounding snare but still has some crack to it, great sounding snare.

                          Nope NOPE nope................ I have this snare. It does have a dark sound, but major crack and pop to it....tuned tight.....not deep sounding at all.
                          Great snare but not even close to what I'm looking for. Thanks
