A snare drum is a precussion instrument that is played with two batons or sticks. A snare drum is thinner than most tom toms, and it has a "snare" strung across the botto…m of the drum to give it a 'snap' 'sharp' or a 'crisp' sound rather than the tone you hear from tom toms. If need be you can release the snare part with a small lever found at the top side of the drum; then it resembles a tom tom but with somewhat of a higher pitch. If you have a 'drum kit', usually the snare is in front of you. It's the drum you keep time with along with your bass drum; tom toms are found above the bass drum, with the exception of the floor toms, and are generally used for fills to enhance the songs changes or feel. You can have several tom toms, but normally there is just one snare drum. Usually a steady beat on the cymbals is accompanied by a 2 and 4 beat on the snare, although there are many different beats and styles that are apparent with different drummers performing various rhythms. Jazz drummers may use the snare more extensively with multiple hits per beat, but this is not to say rock drummers use it any less.
Answer fart money
Snare is a type of Drum, not a component like the head or skin. My guess the term was used by analogy with (Trap) one speaks of a trap drum set-the usual drummer"s ensem…ble, and the snare drum is part of that, also a snare is a type of trap-and is so decribed in one of the verses of Amazing Grace- through many dangers, toils, and snares, no, not the autobiography of a drum repairman. snare is a type of drum, not the component of the instrument. a device called a systrum- or cistrum is inside the drum and makes the rolling, rat-at-tat sound with sort of rattle sound, this may be what you are thinking of. By the way have you heard the term (Biff!) it is aplied both to a style of drumming and also a nickname for Drummers- Bobby Ettinger, if you are out there, I remember (Biff!)
The top is the batter head
A snare drum got its name from the chains or snares on the bottom of the drum.
It is called a snare drum because it has wires going across the center of the drum, underneath, when the drum is struck, it uses the metal wires to create a "sizzle" or "rattl…e" sound. This gives it the distinct sound that a snare drum has. And some people will just call a snare drum a snare for short.
The stretched skin.
The snares are the wires or cords under the resonant head on the snare drum that give it the snare drum sound.
the snares on a snare drum are on the outside of the drum. the causes the vibration to not be affected by the accoustics ======= Snares are located on the outside of the bott…om head.
The batter head.
if you want a good snare drum then yes. but it is not impossible
It depends on what you want. A snare drum produces higher and lower sounds, if that's all you want, and a drum set comes with a snare drum, and a base drum (lower sounds only…), and another drum that has higher sounds only (sorry, i don't know the name). Also a drum set comes with cymbals.
The parts of a snare drum are: 1) Drum Shell - can be 10-16" in diameter, but 13 or 14" are the most common. The shell can be made of wood (often 6 or more plys of maple, birc…h, mahogony or basswood) aluminum, or brass. The shell can be anywhere from 3" (piccolo) deep to 14" (marching drum). Here's 4 common shell sizes- 8x10 Soprano 3x13 Piccolo 6x14 Standard 12x14 Marching 2) Snare Wires - These are the strands on the bottom of a snare drum that give it the sanre sound. There can be anywhere from 12-40 strands, but 16 or 20 are the standard amount. Wires are generally metal, but can be made of cable, brass, or gut (originally all snare wires were gut). 3) Snare Strainer - This is the mechanism to turn the snares on and off and to tighten or loosen the snares. There are many different makes and models of snare strainer (possibly hundreds), but they all function the same. 4) Drumheads. Top drumhead is usually a white coated finish. The bottom head is a thinner clear plastic in order to respond to the snare wires. 5) Lugs and tension rods. With threading similiar to a screw, on all drums tension rods are tightened up or loosened to tune the drumheads up or down. Lugs are attached to the drumshell and hold the tension rods
All parts of a snare drum are important, take any element away will effect the performance/sound. The thing that makes the snare differ from most drums is the snare wires that… are in contact with the bottom head of the drum, this gives the snare its distinctive "crack" when struck take away the wires and it will sound like a high pitched tom-tom
good question no one really cares sorry :/
They both have stretched membrane or a drumhead which is hit and the one that vibrates to produce that sound of the drum.
