Default Help A Noobie Drummer

Hello all,

I am on a quest to find a specific kind of sound, and I would love some assistance in this matter. While I am familiar with the term 'snare drum', I believe it's far more general a term than I originally thought, as it seems to apply to drums of all shapes and sizes.

This is the sound I am trying to replicate:

Specifically the 4 snare drums. Any ideas on what this is called, and how the shape affects the staccato sound? I really want the 'lighter' tone they are playing, as opposed to, say:

Any ideas? I assume the taller/wider the drum, the deeper the sound?

The rule is neither arbitrary nor even existent, at least not when it comes to YT videos.

A smell of petroleum prevails throughout.

I don't if this will answer your question, but this guy shows you how to tune the snare to get various sounds.

The greatest snare drum tuning trick EVER!
