The parts of a snare drum are: 1) Drum Shell - can be 10-16" in diameter, but 13 or 14" are the most common. The shell can be made of wood (often 6 or more plys of maple, bir…ch, mahogony or basswood) aluminum, or brass. The shell can be anywhere from 3" (piccolo) deep to 14" (marching drum). Here's 4 common shell sizes- 8x10 Soprano 3x13 Piccolo 6x14 Standard 12x14 Marching 2) Snare Wires - These are the strands on the bottom of a snare drum that give it the sanre sound. There can be anywhere from 12-40 strands, but 16 or 20 are the standard amount. Wires are generally metal, but can be made of cable, brass, or gut (originally all snare wires were gut). 3) Snare Strainer - This is the mechanism to turn the snares on and off and to tighten or loosen the snares. There are many different makes and models of snare strainer (possibly hundreds), but they all function the same. 4) Drumheads. Top drumhead is usually a white coated finish. The bottom head is a thinner clear plastic in order to respond to the snare wires. 5) Lugs and tension rods. With threading similiar to a screw, on all drums tension rods are tightened up or loosened to tune the drumheads up or down. Lugs are attached to the drumshell and hold the tension rods (MORE)
All parts of a snare drum are important, take any element away will effect the performance/sound. The thing that makes the snare differ from most drums is the snare wires that… are in contact with the bottom head of the drum, this gives the snare its distinctive "crack" when struck take away the wires and it will sound like a high pitched tom-tom (MORE)
