Parts of snare drum?
Batter head Batter head hoop Double-ended lugs Shell Snare-side head hoop Snare-side head Snare Throw-off Snare butt end Snare strainer Vent grommet The vent grommet normally secures the nameplate Very occasionally you'll see a snare drum on an isolation mount like you'd mount a tom, but that's normally done when someone plays piccolo snare.

Thanks for the feedback!
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.

The snare drum was invented in Medieval Europe sometime in the 1300's. It was back in east India in the olden days
Snare drums are musical instruments made out of plastic, metal, and sometimes cow hide. These items are held together with screws.
Snare drums vary tremendously in size and price. If you're looking for a beginner snare you can probably find one for about 50$. However if you're looking for an average… snare they vary between about 100 and 200 dollars. Eventually the more expensive snares such as Pork Pie, Orange County D&P, and others can cost from 400 $ and up. I would check out musiciansfriend.com or music123.com
The snare drum came from percussion family!
answer PEARL ONE OF THE BEST THEY LOOK LIKE THEY STUDY AND MADE THEM PROPERLY,YAMAHA ARE OK,CRAVIOTTO ARE FIRM THIS TWO COST BUCKS TO BUY BUT THEY ARE GOOD,C&C AGAIN COSTLY BU…T GOOD AN IMAGINABLE SPECIALLY THOSE ACRYLICS,BUT ANY OF THESE HAS TO BE TUNE PROPERLY OR NOTHING.
Punchline Drum Roll = 'badum tssssh'. Some drummers use a tom-tom-kick-crash. Others use a snare rimshot-rimshot-kick-crash. (a rim shot is when the drumstick hits the rim a…nd the head of the drum at the same time) The punch line drum solo is thought to have originated in Vaudville.
The snare drum is different to normal drums, as it has two skins. Under the bottom on are a series of chain-like-things. (Sorry for not being more specific). When you hit the …top skin, the bottom one vibrates making the chains rattle. The snare is the "chain-like-thing" referenced above and it really isn't chain-like at all. A snare is several long, thin, metal strands with a very tight spiral pattern. They are stretched along the resonant head (bottom head) of the snare drum. The vibrations of the snare against the head produces the snare drum's signature sound. The snare can be tightened or loosened to change this sound from a sharp crack to a soft fizzle.
Snare Drums can be made out of Metals, Woods, and polymers like acrylic. Typical configurations are Steel Aluminum Bronze Copper Mapl…e Birch Mahogany Any wood can be used and any metal but these are the most common of them for use in modern music with snare drums.
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 above answer seems to be correct, but only in theory. The snare drum does and must have a pitch. They need to be tuned up and kept at the right pitch as they become broken… in. In these cases we are not concerned with how tight the drum is, but how even is the tension. Once the drum is evenly tensioned it can be brought up to pitch. Using the Key, gradually tighten the tension rods until the pitch of Ab - B is achieved for a 5 inch drum. Use a piano to verify. Once to pitch, turn the drum over and repeat the process for the bottom head. Tighten until the bottom head reaches a perfect fourth to a perfect fifth higher than the top head. This can be difficult, no distractions allowed.. Turn on the snare strainer and reajust the tension if necessary. No, snare drums do not have a pitch, as like all drums, the snare, when hit, produces a multitude of different frequencies, and as certain notes have certain distinguishable frequencies, you cannot tune it to be a certain note.
The hole in the shell is generally termed the air vent.
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
The snare drum distinctive sound is created by the snare wires, these are in contact with the bottom head of the drum so when the top head is struck it causes the snare wires …to jump and snap back in a millisecond giving the "crack" of the snare as they say.
