Tuned Low or High this snare sounds great. It is visually stunning. The name "Velvetone" describes it perfectly. This is one of those if you had to have one snare to do it all this would be the one. Tuned low it is velvety smooth. Tuned high it has nice crack with little "ring". Great snare, Mapex has outdone themselves.
