The snare drum is one of many instruments that can be described as easy to play but challenging to master. The basics of rhythms and rolls can be taught in just a few sessions, but becoming a world-class snare drummer takes years. There is one thing that takes even longer to master, however: the process of building that snare drum. The brand names in this selection of concert snare drums reads like a "who's who" of companies that have managed to perfect the craft, so if you're looking for the right snare to help you achieve a top-tier performance, then you've come to the right place - all you need to do is choose the ideal one to deliver your signature sound to the audience.

When it comes to picking out concert snare drums to add to your collection, the single biggest decision to make is the material. For a traditional sound, your best bet is a wooden-shelled drum - in fact, you can even go for an antique look and tone with a wooden-hooped model like the Pearl Philharmonic African Mahogany Snare w/Maple Hoops 15x8". Other wood-shelled snares, like the top-selling Black Swamp Percussion Pro10 Studio Maple Snare Drum, use metal hoops, which are the standard due to their great tuning stability, strength and durability.

For certain concert snare drums, the entire body is made of metal; specifically, either brass or aluminum. Some of the best-loved examples of metal-shelled snares are the Pearl Philharmonic Cast Aluminum Concert Snare Drum and the Pearl Philharmonic Brass Concert Snare Drum. With increased brightness and attack, these models can definitely liven up a performance - and if you really want your band's drumline to stand out, how about arranging for each snare drummer to play on a different shell material? Mixed together, they're sure to sound amazing.

Somebody who isn't a musician might make the mistake of thinking concert snare drums are simple things - but not you! As a percussionist, you're well aware that a good snare is actually a pretty complex piece of musical engineering, and this lineup of instruments is all the proof it takes to show it. One of the concert snare's most important jobs is to make the band's sound come alive, and these drums are more than up to the task.
