Loud!

Bjorn E., 06.08.2013
When I first unboxed this snare drum I was blown away by how it looks! The brass looks really nice and has this shining effect.
Before playing on it I thoroughly inspected the snare for any flaws/defects and none were found. I noticed that it's a very solid build and that it's a very heavy snare drum. You might want to keep that in mind when choosing a snare drum stand, don't go for a very cheap one!This snare drum deserves more!
What I liked most is the fact that you get 2 strainers just for that extra detailed tuning that some drummers may require. It also comes with brass snares and a remo drumhead.
That's probably all I can say about features and the build of the snare.

Now onto the sound. As my title already suggests it is a very loud snare drum in general, but don't underestimate it because you can play it quietly and even then it sounds amazing! You can really feel the warm, full tone of the brass no matter if you're a hard hitter or you prefer a bit softer.
This snare drum has a lot of potential and it really cuts through any sound: cymbals, guitar amps, bass amps,... so I wouldn't recommend it for the more subtle, quiet genres like jazz cause you might have trouble controlling your sound.
Lastly on controlling the sound I noticed there are some overtones when the batter head isn't dampened, although these are minimal they are still there!

I've had this snare drum for a couple of months now and I must say it was worth every euro/dollar/pound I spent on it!

Very good

25.08.2016
He has fulfilled the expectations he had of her. Very good sound and a beautiful finish. Once the tuning sounds very good and the rimshots come out alone.
It weighs a lot but for the street I would not think of getting a jewel like this. The bordonero is very soft and allows some rapid changes.
In conclusion for what is worth and not being the most expensive is a very good purchase.
