    Does the job I guess

    Pearl Firecracker 10x5Published on 06/29/11 at 14:47
    If the job is practicing at home then this snare drum does the job. Other than that I would not recommend this snare. Pearl has developed a reputation of excellence and probably the leader of the drum world along with Tama and a few others. You can easily recognize the name and instantly know that they dominated the drum world. They are kind of like the Fender or Gibson or drums.

    Pearl Firecracker Snare Drum Features at a Glance:

    Poplar shell
    10" x 5"
    1.6mm Steel Hoops
    CL-50 Lugs
    6 Rods
    T-062 Tension Rods
    SR-018 Strainer

    The tone of this snare isn't the best. It does have a decent Remo head on it, but the snappy attack of what you desire your snare…

    The tone of this snare isn't the best. It does have a decent Remo head on it, but the snappy attack of what you desire your snare to be just doesn't exist in this drum. The tone will not bloom as much as a deeper and wider snare would bloom.

    This drum uses a the wood poplar which is a brighter toned wood and great for many applications. It would be a good choice in wood if it were combined with a maple or another combination that would allow the drum to get a few more frequencies throughout the attack.

    This drum does have a good clean attack to it but it comes off trying to hard. The snare is just not capable of getting that crisp aggressive attack that a quality drummer is expecting.

    At new these snare drums come in at around $119, which isn't a bad price for a single snare drum. You can find this drum snare just about any guitar shop around town, this is the introduction snare drum for most beginning drummers. I would recommend this drum to anyone who needs a backup and doesn't want to fork out several hundred dollars to replace the pro snare on your existing drum kit. This is a basic snare drum that will fit the simple needs of a drummer.
