    Smile Pearl Philharmonic or Black Swamp Carbon snare?

    Hey all,

    I'm got a b-day gift where I pay for half on a snare. I saw these two on sale at a local shop. Which one should I get? What are things I should consider when choosing a snare? Obviously I'm a beginner at this so the help is much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Could you describe the types of sound you get from each. The one that sounds more crisp, and has a longer lasting sound should be the way to go.

    By longer do you mean sustain? So shorter would be more like the highland types of snare?

    Yes. I'm sorry I wasn't exactly clear. I meant sustain.

    Seeing as I'm a pianist, I'm not so well educated with the different percussion brands. I just know specifics about sound quality, so I'm sorry if I couldn't help.
