UCA1450 Ultracast 14"x5" Aluminum Snare at a Glance:
Thick cast aluminum gives you a full-bodied tone
The UltraCast is Pearl's exclusive precision-milled, cast aluminum shell snare drum. At 3mm thick, this is one of the thickest metal drums you'll find. Aluminum is a relatively soft metal, and provides the warm, round, full bodied tone of a wood shell snare. However, it also possesses the crack, volume and projection provided by a metal snare.
Better, more consistent tuning and head seating
Since UltraCast is a milled cast aluminum shell, its bearing edges are precision-cut and perfect every time. This provides ease of tuning and perfect head seating around the entire circumference of the drum.

This is by far the most versatile snare I have ever heard! It has the crack and power of a steel shell snare with the warmth and tone of a wood shell. I especially like its tuning capabilities because you can tune it down low to get a full bodied thump or crank it high to get teeth shattering rimshots. This may be the last snare you will ever buy!
