My new favorite

FredM, 07.11.2014
Compared to the LUDWIG LW0814 14 "X08" BLACK MAGIC and the DW PDP 14 "X08" BUBINGA SNARE, I decided to use this snare.

I tested them with an Aquarian TC-B coat, like the other two. I pull my snares pretty high.

Processing: No obvious flaws. The clamping blocks are partially heavy at the top, presumably due to the construction with the long free-standing buck. The attachment and the mechanics of the Schnarrteppichs is simple but functional.

Packing / equipment: Drum. Voice key. Silk paper around the kettle, plastic bag, cardboard. Nothing fancy.

Sound: Ah, the sound. Precise, penetrating, coherent. I play it as the first snare without damping, because it simply sounds beautiful without lingering or mocking. Not marshy, as I would with other wood boilers, not too pointed as with metal. Rim shots are indeed a pleasure-taxing affair. Rim clicks are their weakness. Because you have to be precise on the coat, a little bit inside or outside, and do not sound. It can compete as a 5.5 "snare loosely with the 8" snares, as regards fullness and pressure.

Other: The actual wooden boiler is only about a fifth of the boiler high, among them is a gray metal ring, which holds the clamping blocks and the Schnarrmechanik.

Conclusion: The isses for me!

Beautifully sounding snare drum

07.12.2014
Having mostly used shallower snares over the last years - the 14x4 and 13x3 Pearl Maple Piccolos have been my go-to snares for some time - I decided to go a bit deeper and purchase this 14x5 Maple Free Floater.

Soundwise, this snare drum has not disappointed me at all. The fullness and richness of the maple wood is present at all volumes and the drum speaks very clearly at low volumes too! It tunes easily up or down, and has a sweet, controllable ring.

The Satin Laquer natural wood finish looks like a dream, the edges all smooth, and the die-cast hoops are very sturdy. My only gripe really is the tension rods: although I'm not at all a hard hitter, I do like to spice up my backbeats with a tasty rim shot every now and then, and I found that the tension rods at the places of impact 8 and 4 o'clock) de-tune like there's no tomorrow. That, of course, is a bit strange to happen with a drum of this caliber, but I'll be getting some locks / tight screws etc to solve that issue.

Other than that, a highly recommendable snare drum to use in a wide variety of musical settings. Enjoy!
