Amazing sound halfway between a timbales and a piccolo snare
Fraspro, 04.05.2018
It's versatile and it got a very clear and defined sound whether you use it with snare on or off.
-With snare off it's a quality mini timbales, perfect companion for latin and reggae.
-With the snare on is a fantastic mini snare providing this short sustained sound wich is particularly good for accents, being able to cut trough basically any kind of sound texture. Having this short sustain i find it very suitable for fast an responsive music styles such as drum and bass or breakbeat.
-It is pretty solid and very easy to tune as it comes with its own wrench. i just recommend to tune it very tight as it seems to sound way better then with a loose tuning. As you can imagine this leads the snare timbales to sound very high in pitch so if you may need a lower pitch you better check the 10" model. Personally i'm very comfortable with this size as it makes possible to place it very easily beside the rack tom wich better fit my need of involving it into fills.
I'm very satisifed ,and i really think it worth the money.

A brilliant little instrument from Meinl!
Ryan Halkyard, 23.01.2014
I have been using this drum for little over a month now and so far I am incredibly happy with it! When the snares are turned off it produces a wonderful, bright timbale sound and when in snare mode it produces a very tight and crisp sound, almost like a marching snare or drum corps kind of sound.

The drum is very well made and it hasn't moved at all since i set it up on my kit. The quality of the stock head also surprised me as it is easy to tune and hasn't de-tuned with time. There is also a Meinl tuning spanner included so tuning the drum is easy.

One drawback I have found while using this drum is that the lever to turn the snare wires on or off can be somewhat stiff and awkward to use and I often find myself having to use two hands to turn the snares off.

I own both this model and the ten inch version and I would say that if you can only purchase one of these snare timbales then I personally would choose the ten inch model. This is not necessarily because it sounds better than this eight inch model, but because its larger size means it has a much more versatile tuning range and is a little louder.

Overall I personally love both of these drums and they work brilliantly together whether they are both in snare mode, both in timbale mode or in some other configuration. You truly get a wide variety of sounds from these quality instruments from Meinl!
