  • Snares, pick one

    What does everybody in here think of these snares:

    5.5 x 14 Brass Sensitone
    4 x 14 Maple Piccolo
    3.5 x 14 Brass Free Floating

    I need some opinions, and if you have any other favorites.

    Thanks in advance, later.

    I would go with the Free-floating brass. Beautiful snare. Also you can always buy extra shells to go with it so it would be like having 3 snares in one.

      Go with the brass free floater.

        FFs are great, but if you don't plan on swapping the shells, or want something a little "meaier" than the 3.5" depth, go with the Sensitone.

            brass free floater eh? I'll have to look into it. The guitarist in my one band plays drums too, and hes got a nice set, Pearl Prestige Session Select, with the Brass Free Floater, but his is 5.5 x 14, It sounds good. I heard a 3.5 that this guy was playin at a metal gig though and it tore through the volume but was so perfect at the same time, liked it even better.

            If I were rich though i'd go stock pile myself with a few Tama Bell Brass
