AdvantagesEase of tuning

DisadvantagesSometimes a bit pricey

"I've been using a Pearl Free Floater, 14" X 3.5" steel shell picolo for a few years now without any problem. The drum gives an amazing crack when cracked up high, yet has enough volume and sustain to fill an average sized venue.

Pearl Free Floating Snare: Good sound quality, higher price level

AdvantagesMaple wood, solid sound, reputable brand

DisadvantagesPrice, smaller head

"The Maple wood in the drum produces a very solid and clear sound. In my opinion, it is slightly on the higher price side, but it is very worth it for the sound quality. It is smaller than most standard snare drums, but it's high quality maple wood makes the sound higher pitch but very solid. I have had this snare for about 2 years. I use it as a side snare drum, but I hit it quite frequently. It hasn't really worn down too much. One should tune this ..." Read review
