I bought this black birch snare to use with my strata black birch Pearl VSX drum set as an alternative snare along with the metal Sensitone snare that came with my kit. There is space visible between the hoop and the rim of the head looking from the top. I was thinking of returning it and getting another one but instead I replaced the Protone head with an Evans ST Dry batter head, tuned it up using a tension watch, and that solved the problem. It sounds great now. I've never used a birch snare before; the sharp woody tone sounds fabulous. It kicks butt!

Definitely not a high quality snare... I got one with my set, and already some of the snares have broken off, and it has the most annoying ring if you hit it anywhere but dead center. If its all you can afford, it can be endured, but I recommend saving your money.

Awesome Snare for the Price!!!!!!!!!

By Dillon S.

from New York

Comments about Pearl Vision Birch Snare Drum:

I love this snare!!!!! I went to guitar center looking for a solid, inexpensive snare drum and this one really gets the job done!!!! It is light weight yet durable, but I recommend a snare bag if you are planning on doing some heavy touring with it!!!! I tried it out and it had a solid snappy sound... even the stock head on it sounds better than some I've tried... I took it home, slapped some moon gel on there and it plays like a dream!!!!!! I highly recommend it!!!!!

Best Snare for the Money

By Cory

Comments about Pearl Vision Birch Snare Drum:

I recently upgraded from a tired old Yamaha steel snare that was on its last leg to this snare, and let me tell you: This snare has the best snap and sensitivity out of all the others I tested in my local Guitar center under $120. Aside from being absolutely gorgeous with that glossy black finish, its a great, high quality snare for not all that cash. I would, without hesitation, recommend this snare to any drummer on a budget!

Pearl VX Snare Drum

By Mike Laughridge

from meridian, Idaho

Comments about Pearl Vision Birch Snare Drum:

I wanted to get another snare drum. No real reason I just wanted to add to what I had. Pearl has a good name a good features. I got this snare because the price was low and it had a birch make up. Well when I got it home I was surprised at the way it was boxed up. Pearl did a good job. As far as the sound .................I just tuned it up kind of tight and WOW. Very good. In fact I took it to a couple of live performances just to see how it stacked up. I tell ya .......it sounded very good on stage and I had a couple of other drummer say "hey that sounds good." I am very satisfied with the Pearl VX limited edition snare.

awesome snare

By Marc Castro

from grand rapids MI

Comments about Pearl Vision Birch Snare Drum:

this snare is awesome. i needed a new snare badly but at a affordable price. first choice pearl. as soon as i seen it i fell inlove wit it. but as soon as i took it home i was so crazy bout it. wen tighten it makes a solid thud and no over tone. this was the first snare i bought and im never gettin rid of it. i thought of gettin a remo snare head at the store before i went home and thank god i didnt because the stock head sounded beautiful wen hit. i say this is a steal get this snare its worth it.

step up from the bottom end

By marshall embree

from texas

Comments about Pearl Vision Birch Snare Drum:

most often the price is going to tell you alot about quality. this is buy no means manufactured to be a high end snare, but is a real improvment from a lower end snare you might have as a beginning drummer. It is good looking no doubt, but some flaws, being in quality. The bearing edge is inconsistent making it difficult to tune and the tension rods on the one I own are to easily knocked out of tune. A great buy for a relatively new drummer but if your a well developed player you may look for higher quality.

Good snare drum for the money

By Chris Hanson

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Pearl Vision Birch Snare Drum:

I bought this snare drum as my very first drum, so I was looking for something cheap yet what I thought was "good" at the time, So i bought this because I was familiar with Pearl drums and when I bought it, I instantly replaced the stock head with a Remo Controlled Sound because of recommendation from a friend and when I first got it and put on the new head and tried to tune it, it obviously wasn't going to sound too good because it was my first time replacing a head and thats how it was, I hated the sound for awhile but after a couple months and after learning a lot more about drums, I came back to it and was able to tune it to perfection and make it sound exactly the way I wanted it to, Only things i'd suggest doing when you get this snare drum, is replace the plastic strip holding the snares in place with string and tighten them a bit and replace the stock head with a head of your choosing, It took some work, but in the long run, I came to LOVE this snare drum

Great for beginners

By Dan

Comments about Pearl Vision Birch Snare Drum:

I got this snare for Christmas, and it is great. I have been playing for about 5 or 6 months, and this is a good sounding snare. Once I'm a little more experienced and know that I will stick to drumming, I'm investing all of my money into more Pearl products.

      I had to buy this because my old snare randomly broke, but I'm glad I got this. Right out of the box i barely wanted to tune it up because it already sounded good. I only did because i wanted a certain head on it
