I am looking to buy a new snare drum. Could you tell me the difference or which is better or more popular wood or metal. Thanks EdANSWERHi, Ed--The choice of a wood or metal snare drum is purely a matter of taste.The metal snare drums have a higher pitch and usually more volume. Wood tens to have a more mellow and rounded tone.Lynne
