See media help. Much of the development of the snare drum and its rudiments is closely tied to the use of the snare drum in the military.

Moeller of the "Moeller Method" of drumming states, "To acquire a knowledge of the true nature of the [snare] drum, it is absolutely necessary to study military drumming, for it is essentially a military instrument and its true character cannot be brought out with an incorrect method.

When a composer wants a martial effect, he instinctively turns to the drums. American troops were woken up by drum and fife playing about five minutes of music, for example, the well-known Three Camps.

A piece called the " Tattoo " was used to signal that all soldiers should be in their tent, and the " Fatigue Call " was used to police the quarters or drum unruly women out of the camp.

Most modern militaries and scouting groups use the bugle alone to make bugle calls that announce scheduled and unscheduled events of the organization from First Call to Taps. Snare drumheads were originally made from calfskin. The invention of the plastic Mylar drumhead is credited to a drummer named Marion "Chick" Evans, who made the first plastic drumhead in It has a snare-release lever to activate or deactivate a minimum of eight metal, gut, or plastic snares. The term came into use in with the invention of the tensioning-screw mechanism.

It is frequently placed on a stand. Tabor : a large drum with a single snare on the batter head used in the middle ages and sometimes called for in orchestral repertoire. The larger design allows for a deeper-sounding tone, one that is effective for marching bands. They are played with most of the time with a heavier and thicker stick, more commonly referred to as "marching sticks".

Snares are often nylon or gut. A line of marching snare drums in a high school marching band Pipe Band Snare Similar to a marching snare, pipe band snares are deep and tuned quite tightly. The major difference is that they feature a second set of snare wires beneath the batter head, along with the normal set on the resonant head. Snare drummers form an integral part of pipe bands, accompanying the bagpipes, and playing music written to fit the pipe tunes.

A bass drummer and several tenor drummers, who also perform visual representations of the music, known as flourishing, add to the percussion section of a pipe band. The music played by pipe band snare drummers can be technically difficult, and requires a high degree of rudimental ability, similar to that of marching bands.

Pipe Band snare drummers exclusively use the traditional grip. Drum kit snare Drum kit snares are usually about a third to half the depth of a marching snare. Piccolo snare The piccolo snare is a type of snare used by drummers seeking a higher-pitched sound from their snare. Because the piccolo snare has a smaller diameter than that of the marching snare or set snare, a higher-pitched "pop" is more widely associated with it.

Although the piccolo snare has a more distinctive, unique sound, it has some downsides. Because of the "sharper" sound of the piccolo, its sound travels further and is picked up by microphones further away during recording, making it difficult to record effectively. Orchestral Snare Orchestral snare drums usually conform to the dimensions of drum kit snares, but often have a calf skin head or a synthetic approximation of a natural head material.

They also typically use snares made of metal cable, gut, synthetic cord, or nylon, [24] with some orchestral snare strainers supporting 3 different materials simultaneously and the ability to tune each bundle of snare material independently. It is a double-headed drum with a single snare strand, and was often played along with the three-holed pipe flute. The dimensions vary with the different types of tabor. The major distinction is that the snares in this type are on the top head rather than the bottom one.
