    Default Buying an additional snare drum

    I am building a home studio recording. Recently I bought a late 80's MIT Pearl All Maple Shell drum kit. 3 toms, 1 floor tom and a kick. I also have bought a Ludwig Black Galaxy Acrolite Snare drum. Now I am looking for a good versatile wooden snare for the studio. Preferably €400 or less. Would spend a bit more if it would be that much better.

    What snare would you recommend?

    Tons of wood snares out there.
    Pearl MCX ,free floating used are easily under your budget.
    Lot's of DW (10&6)comes to mind.
    Tama SLP stuff.

    I have said this many times in here.
    The 13x7 Tama G-Maple SLP is seriously one of the TOP wood snares out there at a great price!
    And I will NEVER sell it from my collection if that helps any, coming from a guy with over 53 snares

    Next up after a full size wooden snare, would be a piccolo. So I might have already found what I need, the 13x7 Tama. I've seen a couple for sale and they are at a very reasonable price.

    What do you think of the Mapex Black Panther Black Widow snare?

    53 snares is the required amount of snares as prescribed by the "We got him to buy another 1" Association of America.

    This is, of course, in case 1 breaks down on the side of the road.

    As the guy on TV says "What's left in your wallet?"

    I have the 13X7 Black Panther maple snare and I like it. Though I need to dial it in more. The G-Maple is my baby right now. Used it last night at band practice.DSC01609.jpgDSC01858.jpg

    Have the 13x7 G-Maple & have to say it is an incredible snare. Have used it constantly for the past 3 years now. Have just this morning, purchased a 13x7 Black Panther Blaster as that will go nicely with my Walnut Saturn kit I am just toying with
