What's your favorite snare sound? Drum Machines & Samplers
Old 19th June 2015

No tragic 80's verb, thanks ;)

Band: My Disco
Album: Paradise
Track: She Came To Me Like a Cancer Lain Doorman Until It Blossomed Like a Rose
Engineer: Steve Albini
Producer: Steve Albini and My Disco
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANtSpPOwtb4

If you are a minimalist fan, you must listen to this album in a hurry...kind of like a binary Shellac with more attitude and extreme-ness. I'm still regaining my hearing from a gig of theirs in The Netherlands when I was traveling, but there from my hometown Melbourne.

OR...a totally different vibe

Artist: Beck
Album: Sea Change
Track: The Golden Age
Engineer: Nigel Godrich
Producer: Nigel Godrich

Great snare sounds with no tragic 80's reverb for anyone that isn't tragically deluded about that whole mistake.

Was listening to the radio in the car today, and I was suprised to hear this from a Pat Benetar track, but the snare on the chorus on "We Belong", WOW, couldn't believe it.

Ayotte with wood rims and perfectly tuned - will make anyone who has been in the presence of drums on a regular basis step back and say "Whoa!"

Sorry if this is egoistic, but I carefully chose this snare, heads and tuning to my liking, so it is my favorite snare sound I actually have ever heard. It probably has more ring and sustain than any snare I have heard:

Perfectly tuned kit

Joe Walsh "rocky mountain way"
David Bowie "let's dance"
Steely Dan "Aja"
10cc "things we do for love"
Led zep "stairway"

Just give me fat low tuned snares with short decay and no ringing, and I'm happy

For those looking to find something contemporary to listen to that has an !organic" feel this is a great album. The drummer went out and bought a "big old 1970s kit"....

Good attack, some crack to it with a decent amount of body to boot.

Here are a few of my fav snares on record.

https://youtu.be/D_Ovnuf1irU?t=525 (Dream Theater - Octavarium @ 8:47 onward)

I think Portnoy is playing a piccolo snare here, not his default one. Tight!

Yoshiki from X-Japan got a great snare sound consistently out of his custom Tama Starclassic Crystal kit (clear plexi shells, like on Ludwig Vistalite).

This is 1989, but the mix is quite raw. He's hitting those skins like a madman - it sounds punchy as hell!

Gavin Harrison from Porcupine Tree is the dream sound for me

Check this out for a snare sound!

Julian Cope's ,"Charlette Anne". Full bodied, tons of crack, and tuned perfectly. Don't know if it's a sample.
