Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well-made in every respect. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I don't really know any added features it needs. Already has 2.3mm thick hoops and 8 lugs. The snare wires aren't "special" looking or branded but sound great. The original batter head looks w-a-y better than the average original from China but I didn't even try it. The huge lugs are a bit of a turn-off for my personal taste but I don't consider that worth a negative rating. Sound How is the tone? Sounds great...better than most snares costing much more. Sonically fits nicely between my 6.5x14 DW and 5x12 Pork Pie. General Your general opinion of this product. If you're thinking about this, don't hesitate. It's a great value. Value Was this item an overall good value? Yes indeed! Appearance Appearance Looks great. I got Piano Black to match my black kit but was very tempted by the beautiful maple one. It does have the "Special Edition" badge.
Excellent Snare Drum

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made snare. I've played it for about one month and am very pleased. No problems at all with the quality of this drum. It tuned up really nice without any problems. NOTE: The badge on mine says "Special Edition", which I was hoping for. I believe that Sonor re-badged the "Force 3007" snares and re-released some (maybe all?) of them as the "Black Mamba". I'm not sure if all of these from AMS will be badged as "Special Edition" or "Force 3007" if that is a consideration for you. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Pretty standard snare drum. Nothing too fancy, just a really good sounding snare at a very reasonable price. Could use a better snare strainer lever, but the one it has works fine for now. For comparison, I also have a Tama Metalworks (2009 model) that has a much more robust lever. Sound How is the tone? Really nice sounding snare. I mainly play rock and have it tuned low, for a meaty sound. I currently have an Evans EC2 head on the batter side. I left the stock snare side head on. After extensive research, this was my #2 favorite sounding snare, behind the Mapex Black Panther Phatbob. However, with the HUGE price difference, I was more than OK going with my #2 choice. It has stayed in-tune after my original tuning a month ago (I play approx 8 hrs/wk). General Your general opinion of this product. Overall this is a great drum, just due to the sound quality. Add to that the very low price compared to other snares that sound worse and cost much more and you've got a winner. Value Was this item an overall good value? Great value. I prefer the sounds you can get from this snare to nearly all of the more expensive snares I researched. Appearance Appearance I got the gloss black, but I think both models look great. It's a handsome snare with its unique lugs - I picked the all black model because it matches my kit better.
