I was offered this snare in a trade for a vintage Zildjian Avedis 19" Ride, and I'm glad I took the offer! I was very much hesitant about it being a Slipknot snare, since I don't really want to be associated with Slipknot, or being a "maggot" as they call their fans. Don't get me wrong, I like a few of their songs, but people seem to look down on their die-hard fans, and most of the people that seem to buy this snare, are die-hard fans. Well, I took the plunge, and this really is a great sounding snare (I just wish it didn't have the giant Slipknot S's on it)!

This snare really excels at a higher tuning and sounds like a timbale without the snare wires engaged. With the snares on, this snare really packs a punch! I've tried steel snares before, and they just haven't done it for me. While they sound okay, there's just a certain quality to them that makes them sound cheap to me, this snare doesn't sound cheap at all!

With a drum dial, I tune this snare to 80 on the bottom, 90 on the top with the original head on the bottom and a Remo Ambassador on the top. The tone is punchy with a huge, quick attack. This snare is a bit ringy, but not in the sense that I've used on other snare drums, where it's annoying, the ring on this snare is highly desirable, especially when hitting close to the rim of the head, and on rimshots. This snare is LOUD and will slice through a mix with ease.

Clearly, it was made for heavier music with an artist like Joey Jordison of Slipknot endorsing it, but it is much more versatile than I've heard it given credit. Tuned low or medium, this snare can get a nice full sound to it. My only complaint is that, while it is very cutting, I find it still lacks a certain "woody" feel that I'm used to with my maple 14x5" snare, and seems to lack a lot of bottom end (at least when tuned high), so mostly only extreme highs cut through, which makes the snare sound a bit one-dimensional.

Either way, I would recommend this to a drummer who's playing heavier music and uses double bass. The 13" size of the drum allows you to more easily play double bass, as your legs aren't riding right up against the snare. The extra inch really does make a difference! I wish this snare had a bit more body to it, but it's one of the few snares that has that awesome ring to it that I've played. I recently sold this snare to try out a similar sized maple snare (Mapex Black Panther), and am waiting on it to get here. Hopefully it fixes my complaints about the Joey Jordison snare!

For the price you can pick these up on the used market for, they're hard to beat! Tuned high, this is an EXCELLENT snare for anything that uses blast beats, or requires a powerful pinginess!

Pearl JJ1365 Joey Jordison Snare Signature
(Originally written by Benou1977/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I've owned it for about two months. I bought it secondhand with an Evans Genera 2 top head and a Remo Ambassador bottom head.

I find the sound of this snare a bit high pitched (I tighten it a lot) and with a strong attack but I wish it would be fuller and warmer (although it has a metal shell).

When the top head is a bit looser I don't like the sound because it's similar to the one of my Sonor Force 3005 which is a moderate priced snare!

I plan to install a Remo Ambassador or Emperor X on the top considering it might enhance the sound (for my taste).

The design is nice but it's not the first thing I look at when I buy a snare.

I bought this snare because it offers a good value for money considering my budget .

If I had to choose again, I think I would buy a Black Panther 14 x 6.5 with wood shell.

Nevertheless I'm not disappointed by this snare. It's a nice snare and maybe I haven't explored all its possibilities.

Summary: good snare.
