Any recommendations on a wood shell snare for $300 or less?
I’m very impressed with the Tama Starclassic Performer B/B snare I just got. Pretty finish, diecast hoops, loud, $300.
Pick your preferred dimension first; think hard.
Pick, choose, settle on.
6.5 are special
It's for a friend. 5-5.5-6 could all work. Def 14". I think the best drum for the money is the crucial factor.
The Tama SLP Fat Spuce is a great drum and gives drums thrice more expensive a run for the money. It’s usually listed at $329 but I know if you call the shops they will go lower.
Or buy used.
The best in what sense comfort; interest over the long haul. Big difference between a common 5 and and a 6.5.
Shallower drum the sound comes right back at ya. Deeper drum you can have that, plus ability to luxuriate a little bit. Then you have hoop decision. cast or Trip etc.
Pork Pie seems a fine choice if not seeking a vintage Lud.
Pork pie maple with the rosewood/zebra wood veneer Or a used pork pie cherry bubinga Both are incredible
How about for only $100?
5.5 X 14 three ply maple, die cast hoops, Slingerland, brand new in the box.
Very limited supply.
Wow that Slingy is a nice looking drum, especially for $100
I have the Pearl Modern Utility snare in 5.5 x 14". Street price is around $150 for the 5.5, $160 for the 6.5" and $199 for the 8" depth. Great drums. I hot rodded mine with some 42 strand wires and die-cast hoops I had lying around -- but they sounded fantastic right out of the box and really well built.
That’s a good deal.
I’m looking for a good deal for a friend who wants to buy an upgrade for another friend. Quality. There are a million sounds. They may all be useful. Best means quality construction, good sound.
Here you go...
I've seen that one but I wonder why there is no badge?
Another $30 and you can grab an INDe...
+1 on the INDe . People here rave about Josh's maple snares.
I thought the INDe's would be out his range but yes, by all means, it's a great drum. I have three!
I don't know if they still have them, but GC was selling an 8x14 black Ludwig snare for $249 a while back. I snagged one to use on rock gigs, and have been really pleased.
Might cost you closer to $400 but a 60s one ply Slingerland will sound great and be worth what you paid for it or more down the line. Might have to deal with a testie clam shell throw off tho.
man , the heads and di-cast hoops alone would be $100 up here .....
