Terminator!
Mr. drummer, 08.11.2019
Wonderful drum and worth every cent. Articulate and on the dry side which was a surprise. Quite pleasant and warm sounding for this heavy brass shell. Amazing headroom and it never chokes at any tuning or volume.

A dream of a drum really.

Klingt wie ein Sample
Lucas Pi, 30.08.2020
Ich habe die Bell Brass Snare für Aufnahmen meiner Band genutzt (Rock/Hardcore) und wir sind unfassbar beeindruckt von dem Ergebnis. Nach ausführlichen Stimmen beider Felle auf ein Medium/High-Tuning kann der Kessel ein unfassbaren Dynamikumfang entwickeln, den ich bisher bei keinen meiner drei Snares hören konnte. Das wir bis nahezu kein Processing auf die Snare-Mikrofone geben mussten, sonder nur auf den Drum-Bus, ist dem Material und der Verarbeitung zu verdanken. Man bekommt einen holzigen Grundton, aber gleichzeitig den Cut und Oberton eines Metalkessels geliefert. Jeder Rimshot war das Geld wert!

Als Schlagfell kam ein Remo P77 zum Einsatz. Ein gewisse dicke oder Vordämpfung im Fell würde ich für lautere Musik empfehlen da es den Oberton auf ein gesundes Maß eindämmt.

Der sehr breite Snare-Teppich ist Geschmackssache. Haben ihn für die Aufnahmen durch einen schmaleren Ersetzt, da er bei richtiger Stimmung äußerst sensibel auf die Racktom und die Kick reagiert hat. Im Live-Einsatz sollte das aber nicht weiter stören.

Wer das nötige Kleingeld und einen soliden Snare-Ständer hat (weil schwer), sollte sich dieses Instrument auf jeden Fall gönnen.

Gekauft aufgrund Tama Bell Brass Snare Nähe
Tamagotchi, 26.02.2020
Habe die Gretsch Snare gekauft weil in diversen Youtubekanälen diese Snare als das "Nachste" zu Tama Bell Brass Snare gilt (Reputation aufgrund Nirvana Studioaufnahme etc.).
Dachte mir für die Richtung die wir spielen genau das richtige. Zu den "Feinheiten" des Klangspektrum möchte ich mich gar nicht äussern, da haben andere ein besseres Gehör (Spiele immer mit Kopfhörern) .
Was aber auffällig zu meiner bisherigen Tama Holzsnare ist (logischerweise) viel ringiger Tone (wie man das von einer Metallsnare erwartet), aber weniger Sustain wie z.B. meine Stahl Pearl Snare.

Ich finde den Sound für Hardrock bis Hardcore und alles dazwischen gut (Nirvana bis Biohazard).
Das was im Internet gesagt und geschrieben wird bezüglich "cutting" stimmt: Die Snare nimmt man trotz/oder weil Gehörschutz, im Vergleich zu meinen anderen Snares
in Brustkorb anständig war (gefühlte Durchdringung wie eine Bassdrum).
In meinen Worten ausgedrückt: "Gottes Faust".

Die Rändelstruktur in der Mitte ist aus meiner Sicht verzichtbar (mach die Snare nicht schöner), vermutlich ist dies aus Bearbeitungssicht erforderlicht. Alle Bauteile fühlen sich "teuer" an.
Die Abhebung interessiert mich nicht ("immer an").

Kostentechnisch ist das wohl das "Günstigste" was der Tama Bell Brass Snare am nähesten ist (selber nie live gehört).
