Snare Drums Metal or Wood ?

Snare Drums Metal or Wood ?

There are plenty of snare drums out there and choosing a good snare drum will last you a life time. I’ve got a ‘Ludwig Black Beauty’ that’s 35 years old that I’ve played on records that have sold millions. My metal Sonor snare has done 1000’s of live shows. The both sound as good as they did when I bought them. Love your snare and it will love you back.

The first thing you have to think about is what sound you are looking for and what ‘Shell’ you will need. Ask yourself “Where you’ll be playing the drum most”, in a recording studio or live on stage. Are you a rock player or are you ‘less in yer face’ ? Whats your budget ? … There are some great all round snares out there for under £200. The Ludwig Supralite Steel Shell Snare Drum is a classic all round great snare you would have heard on tons of records.

There is a huge range to choose from. Including Sonor, Gretsch, Pearl, Mapex, Ludwig and DW snare drums. I believe these to be some of the most respected drum manufacturers in the World. You don’t have to pay a fortune for a great sounding snare.

My favourite all time great snare is the … The Ludwig Black Beauty. You’ve heard it on tons of hit records and is played by the greatest drummers.
