Question is very simple. Write about the snare or snares you use at the moment. You can also post pics or sound samples of it.

I currently use 14x6.5 Pearl MMX snare. It has thin, 100% maple shell with reinforcement rings. It is very warm and powerfull because of it's size. I use Evans Genera Dry as a batter head and Evans Hazy 300 as a reso


my snare

I currently use to snares:

Pearl FFS 14x3,5 Maple as the main one and Sonor Jungle 10x2 as an auxilliary ony. Still I plan on buying a 3rd one - most propably a 14x6,5 MMX like yours ;] or a 13x7 :)

I have 2 snares:
14x6.5 Black Panther Walnut snare( I'm addicted to walnut ;) )
12x2 Arbiter Flats Pro Snare(currently my main snare)
The reason for me switching to a smaller snare is that for now I prefer a sound that is full but quick, with a lot of snare response but with a fast decay(so the short snare gives a quick full rattle). Also when I playa smaller snare, Other toms sound a lot crisper(no sympathetic vibrations to distort the overall sound) and lower. The Black Panther is tuned somewhere between my 12 and 14 inch tom, and the small one is above the 10 inch one.

I play on the snare drum made of Keller shell. It's 13x6 maple 8mm/6ply. I love it tuned high. It's a warm, musical and power sounding instrument. One I can say, is that buying it was the best deal in my drum 'career'.

I just switched to that Pork Pie snare myself, it's very nice.

In the studio we've got several; DW, Yamaha, an old marching snare, etc...

we hope to get some pics while in session for the next album.
I'm going to try to get the PP in on a few tracks, we'll see how it holds up next to its more expensive brothers...
