Didn’t know they made snare drums 5000 years ago, but it seems to have held up pretty well for its age. 😉

Hey Ben. Really glad you like my snare…..loving the grooves too!! Look out for the San Quentin series, coming soon – http://www.repercussiondrums.co.uk

Cheddar Kung Pao says:

As a guitar player who knows almost nothing about drums; that snare sounded great with or without the moon gel.

Rory Fuller says:

You should have used a g1 then the snare would have knowhere to hide and we could get it’s full potential as a 1 ply head is the most versatile

Comp3630 says:

DAMN…that snare sounds so clean.

petoPMKA says:

Canaan Lawrence says:

Ben Minal, your facial hair looks like the Rebel Alliance symbol from Star Wars. I respect that. Great video also!

Vladislav Strelkov says:

Dem Starclassic lugs, gotta love me some Tama

Josue Vela says:

Wow beautiful snare drum

Jesse Yasaitis says:

My drummer asked why I have a Klon KTR, a OD-1 clone, and a tube screamer in front of my amp. “They all sound the same to me” he said. And yes the slight differences in all those OD pedals get lost in the mix. But, they influence MY playing and how I feel my guitar sound. Which translates into an authentic performance.

Stuart Rae says:

That snare is too cool

Doug Payne says:

*O l d W o o d* *R e s o n a n c e*

Hen Levy says:

The moment you took that moongel off… i just sighed in relief

Sam Birch says:


Jason Sayers says:

Man! I fell in love with it from the first hit but when that gel came off!!!!!!!!!!! Where do i buy it? lol

Luc DiGiuseppe says:

Sounding thick! I actually dig it without the dampening, which is odd for me.
