  • 14 x 5.5 Snare

    As reviewed by Adam on 8/11/2011

    I got it out of the box, puut it on my stand, and tuned it in 15 minutes to my liking, and even with the stock head, it sounds great!!! Best snare for the money period. I've been playing with it for a couple weeks now, and it holds its' tuning pretty well, so that's another plus. Looking for a snare?... not anymore, cuz this is a great snare. Buy it!!!

  • Perfect

    As reviewed by Nolan on 3/21/2011

    This snare is simply amazing, I has such a crisp sound and perfect pop. If you tune it tight it has a crack and pop that will cut through any sound. It has a nice rich bang to it, it is amazing for the price.

  • Great Sound, Great Value

    As reviewed by Angel on 11/1/2010

    I bought one of these in the 14 x 8 version at my local guitar center about a week ago, and let me tell you it sounds amazing! As I walked in to GC the first thing that caught my eye was this massive black on black snare drum, after some estimated eye measurements I figured this was a 14 x8, which is exactly the measurements I was looking for on a snare drum. When I saw the size I figured the price range to be from about 300 to 400 dollars. So I said "What the hey? I'll ask these nice people for a price". I was shocked when I heard the response "149.99". I wasn't actually looking to buy a snare that day, but I ended up putting it on lay away. I got it a week ago and let me tell you, the sound is unbelievable! It has a massive attack, like a 50 mm. shell cannon. And the rolls on it are so crisp and buttery that Logan's is asking for a recipe. The look is amazing, transparent black with black hardware. The only thing I am looking to replace is the throw off. But other than that this drum measures up to their big brother series Black Panther. Don't let the price fool you on the quality. So don't get ripped off buying a 300 dollar snare, this one will get the job done and leave everyone in shock and awe!
