This SnareWorks-model fom Drum Gear has always been a darling among rock drummers. Maybe it is because of the way it combines power, warmth, and punch.
This is a mighty snare drum.
You feel it in your gut when it lays a solid back beat. It is a "no shit"-snare that hisses when you need it to but never in a bad way. The drum simply sounds good and it sounds good no matter how you tune it.
On the other side of the spectrum, if you play with delicate control and detail, the drum articulates beautifully and has a nice ring to everything you play.
It is a kind of an all-in-one drum. It does a top notch job at everything you throw at it. All it comes down to is knowing how to take advantage of it in the best possible way.
