The snare drum is probably the most important drum on the drum set.
Each snare has its own sound characteristics and playing feel. The snare you choose dictates your overall sound and voice on the drum set.
There are numerous types of metals and woods used to make snare drums. Metals include brass, nickel, bronze, steel and aluminium. Woods include maple, birch, beech, ash, rosewood and mahogany.
