Make/model for a timbale snare??

Postby cashmoneymillionaire » Wed Dec 09, 2009 3:08 pm

Looking for idea's on makes/models of snare drums that can be used as a timbale, for reggae-flavoured accents

Ideally small size 11-13" and maybe with a piccolo-snare depth to it

Have been using a second snare with the snares turned off, tuned it the fuck up, comes across OK for live shows but recording the thing sounds real shit, comes through the mix sounding like I'm kicking a wooden door

I thought Latin percussion made small timbale snare drums, i've seen them around, but cant find anything online through their website

Thankyou very much and appreciation

piccolo depth (i.e. shallow) doesn't work too well for a timbale sound - you want a bit more resonance and body than a piccolo could offer...

if it has to be a snare (and not an actual timbale), your best bet would be to with an alloy/steel/brass shell, and relatively deep. as shit as it looks, the Pearl Joey Jordison signature snare is cheap, and at 13x6.5 is a pretty good size to be used as a timbale (with heaps of nice ring).
