Well appointed and priced for the active working player, each Modern Utility snare model is flexible enough to add to any set-up, and strong enough to stand up to constant play. Featuring a 6-ply maple 5.4mm shell, SR700 strainer, CL bridge lugs and 1.6mm hoops.

Upgraded the heads and wires and now I have the best sounding snare I have personally played. I might upgrade the hoops eventually but not necessary, strictly. Great value!!

Picked up the 6.5x14 model recently. The drum is well made and surprisingly light which is nice given that it was designed for the working musician. Factory drum heads are almost never very good so I swapped them out for an Evans 300 snare side and an ST Dry batter. I happened to have a set of Pearl UltraSound wires on hand so I swapped them while I was at it. The result: an incredibly responsive, great sounding snare! I think Pearl has a "sleeper" on its hands here. Great, inexpensive snare drum that responds well to upgrades. I may add one or two others in different sizes.
