Excellent snare & great value

Comments about Ocheltree Heavy Metals Carbon Steel Snare Drum:

Playing this snare is addictive! Lay into it and it Screams! Sounds like a cannon on steroids! At low volumes it is extremely sensitive, great for buzz rolls and ghost notes. I unveiled this snare at rehearsal last month and my band mates were blown away! No easy task as I have a sizeable arsenal of snares. This is currently one of my favorite snares. Great sound, visual appeal, versatility and all at a killer price! Try it, you'll Love it!

Gig/Studio Ready Snare!

By Dave

Comments about Ocheltree Heavy Metals Carbon Steel Snare Drum:

I've used this snare both in a studio and live setting and WOW!, I can't believe the crack and tone this baby delivers. It "opens up tonally" more with a two-ply Evans G2 head IMO, so upgrade it with a 2ply batter if you plan on wailin' this thing. Sensitivity, body, warmth, and crack all in one unit!

A serious snare for serious drummers!

By darthtaz

Comments about Ocheltree Heavy Metals Carbon Steel Snare Drum:

In my opinion the best snare's ever made have been the original Slingerland and Ludwig Black Beauty's but John Ocheltree comes very close with this badboy. I was turned on to these after seeing Steve Smith play one at an MD Festival. I actually own a custom black beauty copy of one of these in addition to the 5.5 steel and let me tell you they are worth EVERY penny! This is not a hobby snare. You get what you put into it...heavy heads-warm tones, thin heads-loud penetrating power! Hit it hard it'll crack like a gunshot. Brush it and it'll give you a silky smooth touch. I was surprised to find it so cheap. Worth every penny and more! And the previous guy isn't kidding....these weigh almost as much as a bass drum!
