I find this a great little side snare although I know people who use it as a main snare on smaller kits. With the snares on it is very snappy and with them off it makes a cool timbale. I kept the skin very tight for a long time but the other day I loosened it and got a nice, warm and medium depth sound. I found that when using a tighter tension level, the snares were less noticeable. Its all about the high pitched, ringing rim shots with this snare. I prefer it as a side snare as I don't find it deep enough for the music I like to play. Overall a lot of fun and great value for money
I use this snare drum as a second snare drum for jazz and RnB songs where I need a more electronic or a samba/latin sound. It works for me perfectly for both (totally different) styles. If you add a splash on top of it then the electronic sound is just perfect. For the price you're paying, and if you need any of these sounds, it is a great product. Well constructed, great strong system to put on and off the snares.
The cons: It is obviously not a luxury snare drum (hence the price) but, since you're not using it mainly a snare drum (unless for street gigs, for that ok) the price is fair.
