long had i pondered over the snare to be.
first i thought i'd get some tuff mesh but the transport costs would have likely made it a bit expensive.
i settled for a cheapo 12"x2" hand drum, removed its drumhead and replaced it with a fitting mesh head.
the sensors go into a piece of foam squeezed underneath into pockets cut into it:
well.. this snare will never be able to do proper rimshots, so nevermind i'll call it a tom.
