This is a comparison of five aluminum snares. They have identical heads and were all recorded the same way. No effects were used and no adjustments of any kind were made to the sound.
I attempted to tune them all the same, but in getting each drum in tune to itself, they varied a bit. Still I think it's close enough that you can get a good comparison of how they sound.
Thanks to Taylor Jones of the Vespers for playing the beats so I could concentrate on the recording levels.
