  • What size snare do you play?

    I'm thinking of getting a Conaway snare with a set & He'll custom make the snare. 10 ply snare is pretty thick.

    What do you use?

    I use:

    Silingerland Radio King (steel) 5 1/2" x 14"
    TAMA (Steel) 6 1/2" x 14"
    Blue Moon Custom (9 ply) 9" x 12"
    Rogers (9 ply) 5 1/2" x 14"
    REMO PTS (6 ply) 5 1/2" x 14"
    CB 700 (steel) 6 1/2" x 14"

    The TAMA and the Blue Moon Custom are the 2 I use with my Kit, the rest are mostly for recording and just in case I need another one, so I like my snares vary deep. I am thinking of getting a Slingerland Brass shelled 7" x 14"

      I use a steel SD-225 Yamaha (student model) 5.5" X 14". I want to get the Lars Ulrich steel-plated snare. Does anyone have this? Do you think it would sound good?

        #1 - Pearl Sensitone steel-shelled "Power Piccalo" 13"x5.5"

        #2 - Pearl Export wood snare that came with the kit, with
        the right heads and tweaking, it sounds acceptable.

          I use Tama Bronze Snare 3 1/4 x 13, sounds darker than maple, more punch.

              I use a 5x14" Gretsch 10 ply maple.

              10 ply is kind of the 'standard' ply snare. Unless you get like a stave shell or something like that.

                Noooo, don't do it! It's expensive as hell, and you're just paying for the name really......

                  I've got a Sonor Sonic Plus II 14x5" snare.

                  I want to have a 14x6,5" snare though, not sure what type yet.

                        Sounds like the 5 or 5 1/2 x 14 is pretty common.

                        I've usually a played metal snare, so wasn't sure of a commen wood thickness...thanks Woody.

                        Pork Pie makes a great snare, small enough to place, as a second snare, next to the hi hat and main snare. 4 x 12, kinda expensive for a side snare though...ack.

                          3-ADM wood snare 12"-perfect popcorn snare

                          4-Yamaha wood hoop Anton Fig model 14"-very funky sound

                          5-Ayotte wood hoop maple snare 14"-pure tones

                          6-Ayotte wood hoop piccolo maple snare 14"-pure pop
