The snare drum, also known as a side drum, is a tubular drum. It is made of wood or metal with skins and heads stretched over the upper and lower openings.

How Does Snare Drum Work?

When the upper head is struck with a stick or any other form of drummer, including brushes or ruts, there is a sudden increase in pressure inside the instrument which vibrates the snares against the lower head and produces a short, distinctive snap. like sound. This effect can also be disabled whenever it is not needed.
