Snare Drum Microphones

The snare is played without a carpet, the sound is strongly reminiscent of a Tom. The fundamental frequency is depending on my mood at about 140 Hz, the harmonics hardly enough to 1 kHz. The snare is added and will add a sound component, which has strong noise components. The harmonic spectrum extends far beyond kHz then first The correct choice of the group of the snare drum microphones is then crucial. Indeed, contrary to Tom or a bass drum remains at a microphone with a snare removed the sound quality of the instrument clearly audible. Sometimes a muting the snare is useful. Either with an external damper or a damper ring on the skin. Thus, the snare then loses much of sharpness!
