Cheap price but not cheap quality. Found my ideal sound!

I took a bit of a risk with this snare drum, not being able to find many reviews/good words for it. I am extremly glad that I purchased this fine product. I was looking for a high pitched snare drum that was full-bodied (so preferably a wooden snare) and had a real crack when a rimshot was played.
In terms of how it sounds, it is very responsive; producing each note delightfully, ranging from ghost notes to the heaviest of accents. you can have it tuned from a low, beefy 80's ballad to a comformtable medium tuning, where it could be used across mutiple genres from jazz, blues or rock for example. Tuning it up high gives this instrument a real bite that would not be missed in a live scenario being useful again in different musical styles e.g. RnB, hip hop, electronic, metal but then again it's all about your preferance, no one can tell you how to have your drums tuned!
Physically this drum looks like a treat, the bubinga shell gives that pleasent natural look but gives off the impression that it's going to be loud (which it is!) and that it's going to sound great. The chrome hardware is treated very nicely and sits well with the bubinga. The drum is very heavy due to the sheer amount of plies in the beast. It is actually 18-ply, not 20 (even on the inside of the shell it states this!)
So to sum up! Amazing price, great range of sounds and it's eye candy to most if not all drummers!
Other that the note about misleading amount of plies in this snare, I could not recommend this product further to any drummer looking for a new main or side snare
This is one of my most expensive investment I have made in term of gear.I will use this as primary snare, I was reluctant at first to buy online something that you have not been able to test. What I could hear and see of the reviews were enough to convince me to buy it.
This Snare is very heavy, this describe you the kind of stuff you are dealing with. The Shell is very thick as well. This Snare has one of the most amazing Throw Off System I ever used. It is very easy to trigger even when the chain is tight to the maximum. You can easily switch while you are playing. I find this an awesome feature.
The snare is very sensitive gives you a lot of flexibility and will optimise you effort and will change your playing enabling you expand vocabulary on the drums.This is what I can feel when I play it. I used to tuned my previous snare very tight, both skin, in order to be able to hear my ghost notes without reverb. With this snare however, my ghost note sounds warmer and I am able to tune the top skin not so much tight which gives me a lot more flexibility flow and fluency without having much sustain, something I hate.
It is a very versatile Snare indeed, I have not yet exploited all the tuning with the skin and the chain, but I can tell you that this snare will fit in most style of music you play.
The overall design and the parts that make up the snare are made up of very good quality material and this makes it looks genuine and very impressive. thanks...
