Snare drums are made of different materials, all of which always sound slightly different. To quote a favourite at this point, is certainly difficult, because it is a personal opinion and you should always like the sound of your own snare drum. As the snare is a major part of the overall sound of a drum kit, it is important to make the right choice here. Generally, wood shells sound warmer and sometimes even more balanced, while metal shells sound harder and more dynamic. It is a personal opinion and a personal feeling which snare is the one you like. Have fun choosing!
