Default Buying A Snare

Good afternoon, all. I hope you're enjoying the snow.

Well, I'm in the process of making my 'studio', and something that needs to be replaced without a doubt is my snare. I dabble on drums, but you can't get anything even remotely acceptable out of it, and just yesterday the whole mechanism snapped off. It's just a cheap one after all.

My point is, I need a new snare, but have no clue as to where to start.

Budget would be 120 max, but looking for ~100 (that's the price of a snare in my uneducated mind).

I'm not looking for a full kit, because my bass drum is crisp and beautiful.

Thanks in advance.

You'll be lucky to pick up a half decent snare brand new for less than 200 sheets mate even the mapex stuff is comming in at 200-200+ heading towards the Ludwigs your talking the best part of 500. I think your best bet might be to look for something second hand. Snares come in all shapes and sizes meaning it is down to what the listner likes really.

yeah a hundred quid really isnt much for a snare. And, a bit like microphones, they all sound different and which you do like is subjective.

Used is definitely the way to go at that price. Just keep your eye on local classifieds and ebay and go round and try them out. Recording favourites don't often appear for much less than 300 or so. I've picked up used ludwig 402 and black beauty and a dw collectors all for 3-400 quid each. I've got a couple more on my wish list (Slingerland Road King and a Brady) but I'm balking at even the used price tag on them.
