Awesome

By daybreakdrummer

from Palm Coast, Fl

Comments about Pearl Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum:

This drum had a very good, loud sound to it. pretty much if you listen to chad smith then you know what this snare will sound like. but if you tune the bottom head and top head in just the right interval, then you get a nice dry pop sound out of it.

The best there is

By wyatt

from a very cold place

Comments about Pearl Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum:

I bought this snare after my old one broke. I was looking for one that had a good price, not necessarily one with great quality. But this snare has a great price, and it dominates!!!! I've tuned this baby up so many different ways, and they all sound good. Especially with an Evens HD dry on top, and a Hazy 300 on the bottom.

MONSTER crack

By billy

from Henderson, NV

Comments about Pearl Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum:

i use one at my church, it's just great. Cuts through everything when you want it to, and fades into the background when you want that. so if you play in front of large audiences and participation just kinda happens, give the crowd something to clap to and get this snare.

Versatile Snare for 8+ years

By Innagaddadavida

from Hermiston, OR

Comments about Pearl Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum:

As a college student, when I traded in my beater, garage-band kit for a new Yamaha, I chose this snare because it was shiny, sensitive to ghost-notes, and had great attack. Little did I know that it would be with me for more than 8 years. It has responded to the various styles of play I've thrown at it - chest-thumping rock concerts, funky R&B, drum circle jam sessions (it has a great open-snare sound) and even intimate worship music events. Looking back, for the price, this snare is a sweet deal. I am buying a PorkPie snare soon to try a little something different, but this drum will always be my solid sidekick.

Cool Snare

By Liam Senior

from Washington DC

Comments about Pearl Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum:

This is a really good snare. I'm a huge RHCP fan and chad was a bug indfluence of mine and i finally ogt his snare drum. It sound great, but its his STEEL snare, so dont except a sound from the Blood Sugar time period. Also, chad never uses this snare live apparently, but uses Jimmy Chamberlains snare. But this snare is really great. It has a bright sound that goes great with beats or fills, and can tune to any sound u want. A good price for a great drum.

Amazing Snare

By l0p3z08

from Allen Texas

Comments about Pearl Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum:

This snare has an awesome tone, sometimes even hard to believe it's that good. I love every little thing bout this snare and it has being the easiest snare to tune for me because it simply does not choke, no matter what. Another great thing is the looks, it's got an awesome finish and every drummer should have at least one steel snare so i would high recomment this one because the price is way worth it and it's Chad Smith's snare for crying out loud!

Amazing snare w/ great tone for price!

By tonyetal

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Pearl Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum:

I had been looking for a long time to replace my 10" yamaha snare with something of a warmer tone. I don't usually go for signature series because I've found you often pay for the name not the quality, but with this snare I just had to take a closer look. As soon as it arrived in the mail, it played very impressively out of the box. I have a weird phobia of stock heads so I immediately switched to Aquarians which made an immense improvement. This snare has an amazing warmth and dexterity to it. It does detune rather easily but that isn't something that generally bothers me. All in all it's an amazing snare, perfect for the price. I recommend it to anyone looking to try something new, beginners and pros.
