Sven about his 101 snare:


True love right from the start! This 14“x6,5“ Smokey Diamond snare is just incredible and gives me everything i need! Attack, punch, depth and clarity! Easy to tune and durable as hell! It stays in tune the whole show without tightening the tension rods ever. The brilliant Composite Wood Fiber shell gives the perfect balance between the sound of a steel and a wooden snare drum. Built with knowledge, passion and perfectionism by the great guys at 101 Drums.


I finally found what i was looking for!
