    Default Does anyone know what instruments these, are so I can use them?

    I have a composer, doing the music for a project of mine, but we have been unable to locate some of the instruments that I thought would sound good for the score. One of the instruments that I cannot find what it's called is the type of drum in this score, at 9:37 into the video. It's the instrument in the foreground:



    Does anyone know what drum that is?

    That is just a group of marching snare drums.
    Or 1 snare played with a hard brush, so every hit sounds like more than 1.

    Your composer has no clue?

    Walter nailed it haha. Throughout the piece both groups and solo are displayed. I also would also be a little wary of your composer not being able to spot that, but hey everyone's learnin~

    The composer said he thought it was a snare but we have doubts now cause he cannot get the snare to sound like that at all. This sounds different than snares I have heard and not sure how to get that sound. Was it recorded in a different type of room reverb perhaps as well?

    My best guess would be a very solo snare drum player, most likely a marching band arrangement. You can lightly hear another player doing a trill (that super fast repetition) but this is certainly a solo snare drum player. The instrument as well sounds like there is less timbre to it, it sort of has a staccato "pop" type sound which makes me think the drum is tuned a certain way to achieve that effect. It is possible to find this through an online library, these are very specific marching band arrangements. Hopefully this sheds some light!

    Every snare sounds different. I've got a boss DR-505 with multiple terrible snare sounds, lol.

    It sounds pretty snappy. Maybe it has no tom, only sheet?

    Otherwise try the St.Anger snare :p

    Okay thanks. I guess the snare in my composer's repertoire is not the right kind then maybe.

    There are some tricks you could try in post that can mimic that snare. Less reverb, or a fast decaying reverb in addition with turning just the high end up on the equalizer. There may be a magic combination in there somewhere.

    I use a program called Garritan. One of their libraries is coincidentally an entire marching band ensemble. Their percussion section contains probably over 100 digitally recorded snares, tom toms, etc. with another 100 ways to manipulate. If your composer has a way to look into this, or find a library that offers something close to Garritan's I would absolutely suggest doing that. The realism of the instruments when mixed correctly are nearly flawless to the real thing~

    Or stick a microphone in front of a snare player? :-)
