Mega Crack for Mini Cash
Schengis, 30.01.2021
Honestly, this snare has no business being as good as it is for what they're charging for it. Like I said in the title: This. Thing. CRACKS.

Granted, you have to put in a little time tuning it up and situating the heads (or replacing them), but once you've got it dialed in, get ready to pick your jaw up off the floor.
I started out by putting this up on my practice kit to sort of break it in, but I was immediately caught by how powerful the rimshots rang out. They genuinely weren't joking by calling this thing "mighty".

Positives: Unparalleled sound quality for price point, solid hardware, built-in mount for easy side-snare option

Negatives: Stock heads beaten up quite quickly, tuning may not hold long-term, finish on shell not very scratch-resistant, side-mount may get in the way of some setups

The only place where this snare may be lacking is in "zone diversity". If you just need a solid center hit/rimshot sound for your kit, then it's a fantastic option. If you're looking for something with a lot of nuance and flare, then you may be slightly disappointed.

All in all: Great snare. 10/10 would buy again.

Good sound for the price
GoncaloSilva, 18.09.2020
Cheapest snare this size I could find and I'm pretty happy with what I got. Sounds nice and it's well built. Not the greatest on the market, for sure but if you're on a budget it does the job.

Excellent value for money.
Namelessmusician, 11.08.2020
With a bit of care and fine tuning, this snare can sound very clean and dry. Maybe it lack a little in characteristics, however considering the price and the portability, it is very hard to complain about. As with most new snares, the heads provided are not the best and ring out with some strong tones which I personally don't like, but this is easily fixed with dampening or muting to achieve a solid, dry sound.

Kiva virveli edullisesti

Kivasti soi, ei mitään moitteen sijaa. Tehdaskalvotkin varsin asialliset eikä mitään kiirettä päivittää uusiin ennenkuin nämä on soitettu puhki.
