I own a Tulipwood snare that I got from Drums2112 (Mark) and I love it . This one has the nicest grain I have ever seen on a Tulipwood snare .
Tulipwood has a thicker attack than maple , less articulate than maple . The differences are slight though . Both woods are sensitive enough for brushes and make excellent backbeat snares . Forum Member Murat and I went through about twenty snares and the Tulipwood was consistently our favourite . I have a 5” maple and a 5” Tulipwood and I would be hard pressed to choose between the two .How does tulip compare to maple? Looking to get a 14x7 in either wood...
