Cuts right through

I'm a huge Taylor Hawkins fan, so I had to take the opportunity to try out this snare. It literally cuts right through anything you're playing, giving you a crisp snare sound. Best purchase I've made so far, I use it in all my bands, recording and live. Matt Kreager is the man and gave me the confidence to buy this beautiful snare that I will play for a very long time.

Awesome snare for little money

I bought this snare for my studio. It's a great sounding snare as is. But, I replaced the coated Emperor X batter than it comes with, with a coated Vintage Emperor. Now I'm sure that many know where I'm going with this, right? To me ears it does it. For little money. And that is a beautiful thing.

Powerful Snare

This is an incredible snare not to mention how inexpensive it is for the quality. I get multiple compliments after shows on how great my snare sounds now. A sound guy at one particular show didn't believe me how much I spent on this for how great it sounded.

S-6514-TH Taylor Hawkins Signature Series

Since I do not play drums, I called Zack Neels this past October. I was looking for an extra replacement snare drum for my home recording studio. My clients bring their own snare drum. First time a client damaged his snare head towards the end of their session. With Zack's help and his professional advice regarding types of music being recorded etc. I choose this snare. I received it in 3 days. I tuned it up, then the drummer in my band help tweak it and tuned the rest of the drums (old mid 1970 early 1980's) Premier set and it sounded great. It records great rock. For Oldies and Doo Wop music soft etc, it needs a little muffling with gaffers tape and a piece of folded paper towel if needed. The clients liked it also. And as always, quick shipping and service from Zack Neels and Sweetwater crew.

I'm not a professional drummer, but when I bought this snare along with new remo heads for my gretsch energy kit (beginner kit), the look on my bandmates faces were priceless. The pop and clarity of the sound you get is absurd. Needless to say, it made that band practice the best one yet.
