A 13" x 3" piccolo snare that has a crisp attack and great action. Steel shell construction coated in a black lacquer for a sleek, stylish finish. Snare switch is smooth and positioned well. Drum is nicely priced.
May be too pricey for beginners.
Measures 14" x 5.5". Comes with everything you need to get started: gig bag, sticks, neck strap, 30" stand, and a rubber pad that mutes the sound when practicing. The stand is tall enough to use in standing position, though it can be adjusted to use with a kit. Ideal for students.
Heads are of lower quality and may need replacing for a better sound.
Measures 14" x 5.5". Six-ply maple shell provides excellent resonance. Wood has thin matte lacquer finish for impressive look. Components work together to create excellent sound quality. Triple-flanged hoops. Well appointed.
Some say the supplied head doesn't do this drum any favors. Consider replacing it if you don't like the sound.
Measures 14"x 5". Sensitive, responsive steel snare. Hairline nickel finish. Comes with case, sticks, and practice pad. Also comes with 2.5-foot stand for use when playing while seated.
Few complaints about the drum itself, but many wish the stand were taller.
Comes complete with all you need to get started on the snare. Includes 10 lug 14" metal snare, double-braced stand for extra stability, a pair of sticks, a practice pad to mute the drum head, and carry case for all of the above.
The carry case is of a lower quality than other brands.
