    Question Snare Drum

    Hey guys, I was thinking of getting a new snare, since the one i have is old and kinda bad, just wondering what you guys think are good for a beginner/intermidiate.
    Thanks :D

    Go down to GC and play on as much as you can. That would be my advice.

    Whew, tough question. I'd need a LOT more info. Such as music style, how high/low you sit, budget, brand preference, etc., etc...

    If all you need is a good all-around (industry standard) for a good price, get a used Ludwig Superphonic.

    Shooterman2, this may seem like I'm dodging the question, but it really depends on how much you play, and how hard you hit. If you're playing, and practicing regularly, and you are not an especially hard hitter, the recommendation is generally to replace the batter head every 3-6 months, but that's just a general guideline. The resonant head should be replaced every 2nd or 3rd time you replace the batter head.

    if you want a really nice sound idk how hard these are to get a hold of but my drum teacher has a carbon fiber snare. its got one of the sickest pops ive ever heard. but like bassistlearningdrums said, GC has a lot of options to play on just go and test things out and see how they feel and what u like
