Snare Drums

Snare Drums

When I go to concerts, I always enjoy listening to the beat of the drums. Even though the drummer is only stationary while on the stage, you can’t help but notice how they hit the drums.

In a drum set, most of the time, you hear the sound of the snare drum. If you’re not familiar with the appearance of snare drums, check it out at MusiciansFriend.com. It is usually found at the center of the set, very close to the drummer. I wonder what they usually do to take care of the snare drums. I think that’s the thing the receives most of the beating. If you happen to know, please let me know by commenting below.

  1. No idea as well re drums but just like you, I like seeing someone use the drums. I am easily fascinated by his moves and how he could make a nice sound out of just beating those drums. And I find most drummers gwapo. Ehehe.

  2. Whenever I read about drumming, I am always reminded of MC Hammer. In Delhi, we have this beautiful group which drums every week. The experience is therapeutic, to say the least. I have visited just one such session and long to attend more of them. But why are some snare drums called pork pie drums?

  6. My favourite part of going to see bands is watching the drummers! They’re so epic. My favourite drummer to watch is from an Australian band called Something For Kate. He is a machine at shows, it looks like he’s getting a massive work out.

  8. I tried playing drums when i was with my ex boyfie. He’s a drummer of their band and used to play good music using his drum beats. Drum beats really uplifts every music sound. But so hard to play and need more energy just to play one song. I tried “Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now!” And I’m satisfied that i already did it try.

  9. I love the light, dashing sound of the snare drum. According to my husband (a drummer), it’s like the “lead guitarist” of the drum set. As a musician myself, I take that to mean that the snare drum gives the drums its character and stand-out appeal. I’ve never been able to learn the drums successfully, but I find it an amazing talent (and lucky that my husband is himself a great drummer!)
