Pearl SensiTone Elite 5" x 14" Brass Snare Reviews

5.0 stars based on 3 customer reviews

    WOW! Exactly the sound I was looking for.

    I've been playing in various Hard Rock bands since the early 70's. The very first kit I bought was a Pearl 5-piece that featured a Jupiter 6.5" snare. I love that drum, and have continued to use it ever since, even as my kits evolved from Pearl to Gretsch to Yamaha.

    I recently joined a new band that's playing a diverse mix of Blues/Rock, with a little Latin/Funk thrown in, and decided I wanted a more dynamic sound from the snare - higher pitch, crisper tones, and more emphatic rim shots. Since I had such good luck with the Jupiter, I decided to stick with Pearl, and found the Sensitone Brass Elite was right in the middle of my price range, so I decided to give it a try.

    Let me just say I am absolutely thrilled with the sound I'm getting from this drum. It's precisely what I was looking for. It's perfect for everything from ballads that just need a simple click on the rim backbeat, to hard driving tunes that require a heavier pulse. And the rim shots are out of this world.

    I also appreciate the level of customer service that Sweetwater provides. That phone call shortly after delivery is a nice touch that other vendors should emulate.

    For the price you can't beat it!

    A friend said this when we were discussing bell brass snare drums "check out pearl's heavy brass shell drum and see if you dig it. i LOVE brass shell snare drums. drier more under control than steel, crisper/more responsive than wood, yet with more chest punch, head room and power than any other. "

    This was a great piece of advice and perfect description - I own about 10 snare drums and I LOVE this drum for it's all around versatility.
