Finding a snare drum for my son

When my son decided that he wanted to play drums in the marching band at his high school, I was very proud of him, but I also knew that it was something that was likely to cost me quite a bit of money if I were to get him top of the line equipment.  Although I wanted to make sure that he was not using cheap drums that did not sound good, I also did not want to end up paying thousands of dollars for his drums.  This is why I began looking online for a pearl marching snare that would give him excellent quality but would also not cost me an arm and a leg.  Thanks to the internet, it is possible to find good deals out there on quality drum equipment, and so that was my goal as I began browsing the web in order to see what I could find.

There were some pieces that I found that were relatively inexpensive, but they also looked like they had suffered some form of damage.  This was something that definitely concerned me.  I looked on sites like eBay, but I was also worried that I might not be getting exactly what I wanted from the people who were posting drums on those sites.  I knew that I needed to go with a website that was reputable when it came to musical equipment, and thankfully I finally found one that specialized in drums after looking around for a bit.

I found an excellent snare drum for my son, which not only sounds great, but looks wonderful while he is out there marching with it.  The best part is the fact that it did not cost me nearly as much as I had thought it would.
