    Default What is your Favorite WOODD Snare you have ever played .

    I have many snare drums and was interested in knowing what you thought was the best wood snare you have ever played along with whatever heads. There is no time period on this so you can go back as far as you like.

    I have wooden snares from the 30's. When I say "best" I am referring to warmth, response, whatever you feel makes a snare sound great.

    My favorite is probably a Cleveland Rogers Dyna.



    If you have more than one you can list them in order.

    I’ve never had the pleasure of playing one myself, but hearing it many times live and on recordings, the Slingerland 8x14 radio king (maple) is my favorite.

    Wow. I don’t recall seeing that one. Is that Birdseye a la the CZX finish?

    That’s been my main snare since ‘04. GMS Grand Maters Vintage Maple with a mappa burl finish.

    Edit: It’s Tamo Ash. I don’t know why I said otherwise as I knew it. Brain fart I guess.

    Looks like your GMS is a Tamo Ash finish... like this. I've already commented before, but very nice drum!

    You’re right. I made an error. I don’t know why.

    It's a very nice drum, and you're keeping it very nice. I see many older GMS drums with much more deterioration, like on the hardware and badge... not yours.

    As far as picking my favorite WOODD snare drum, I can't. Luckily, I don't have to pick just one. If you want to see all the different wood snare drums in my collection (currently 30, with one special order on the way), click the link below.
