Snare Drum Tips : How to Play The Center of a Snare Head


JOEL SIEGEL: So, each drum around the kit
is gonna–is capable of producing a lot of different sounds. The first one I want to
illustrate, and this is the one that I’ve been doing so far, is when you’re hitting
in the center of the head. This is advantageous a lot of times for a snare when you’re playing–usually
when you’re playing for any kind of pop music, this is really going to be your most pronounced
staccato, and usually, a slightly higher pitch. It just–it cuts through the music when you’re
hitting in the center of the drum. So, we’ll play it both with the snares off and the snares
on to give you an idea. This is the sound–and I want you to pay attention to the sound as
it is being hit in the center.
