"The only snare you'll ever need"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've been playing drums for over 20 years and have owned a lot of different snare drums. I recently ordered a lm402 from zZounds and I couldn't be happier. This snare is super sensitive and has a huge tuning range from just above a wrinkle to cranked it just sounds good. It also has a large dynamic range from sensitive and delicate playing to rimshots with 2B sticks this snare sounds killer. Speaking of the rimshot its like a shotgun going off its so loud with tons of body and color. I used to have a vintage acrolite snare and the supraphonic has everything I loved about that drum and more. If you want a really dry sound all you need is half a moongel or leave it wide open and get a thunderous amount of ring that actually sounds good unlike a lot of metal snares. Bottom line this is a very versatile snare that sounds good no matter what kind of music you are playing. You will totally fall in love.
