> > > Blind Test, Quiz 2, coated snare drum heads: Answer

Drummers and Drummerettes! It’s time to present you with the answer to the second edition of our new series of quizes we collectively call “Bind Tests“, which we are preparing in co-operation with Avant Drum Shop. Your task was to correctly identify two coated snare drum heads only by ear, based on an audio recording.


You had to choose from the following three coated snare heads: Aquarian Texture Coated, Evans G1 Coated and Remo Ambassador Coated.

The correct answer is:

A: Aquarian Texture Coated 14″

B: Remo Ambassador coated 14″

The winner of the ‘Choose the one you like best’ vote is the Remo Ambassador coated 14″, which got 73% of the votes.

Out of hundreds of entries, the winner drawn by the machine is Paweł Kowalczyk from Sulejów, Poland, who picks up the prize, which is a KORG MA-1 metronome sponsored by AVANT DRUM SHOP.  Congratulations!

Please remember the next quiz and the next prize are coming your way on Monday!

Here is a video presenting the solution to this week’s quiz.
