This snare sets the standard

Comments:

A truly amazing, one of a kind snare. Super sensitive, amazing crack and full round body all in one beautiful little drum. I have owned 25 snare drums in my life and this African mahogany beauty is the finest, most expressive instrument I have ever played. Get one while you can!

Omar Hakin Snare Drum = Awesome

Comments:

I cannot give this drum a high enough rating as it is the perfect snare drum - ever since I purchased this drum (about 5 years ago) it has been the only snare for me - I play in a variety of settings on a given weekend (rock, jazz, church...etc...) and this snare sounds amazing in all settings - the throw off is another great feature of this drum as it is very easy and fast to turn it off/on - the sound of this drum can range from a (surprisingly - as it's 13x5") deep sound to a tight crack - I have a yamaha maple custom (my former favorite snare) that is collecting dust while I enjoy this masterpiece - please do yourself a favor and pick up one of these drums - you will not be sorry!

A Must Own Snare Drum!

Comments:

This drum is the most awesome, under reported piece of percussion on the planet! The African Mahogany shell, by itself is worth the price of admission. Coupled with a great strainer, you have a drum that should be another couple hundred bucks or so. The drum will respond well to all tunings, and will crack nicely if cranked up, or soothe with a phat, low, Jazz Festival moan if so tuned. The 13" diameter will always give a nice, meaty sound, and makes a surprising amount of room at the throne. One day, Pearl is going to wise up, and set the street price for these at six hundred bucks. Until then, I suggest anyone in a band whose fingers don't touch steel strings get one of these puppies. There are many more mass-produced drums to be found, and of course a ton of the Keller Boutique beasts made by everyone with a router and sandpaper. Save yourself a pile; but this one. I don't even use any other drum, and few would really need more either.
