Beatbox Tutorial – How To Do The Snare

by Isato on January 28, 2010

The New basic level tutorial – the snare , In this tutorial we are going to cover the idea why it’s important to have many snare sounds in your arsenal, many beginner beatboxers have the same problem of concentrating on only one snare in their beats , they do only the classic snare , or only the clap so they are not being versatile with their music , and I
think this is very important.

In this beatbox tutorial we are going to teach you 3 different sounds of snares :The classic snare , the Synth snare, and throat snare. In this tutorial you will learn how to beatbox better on it. we give you 3 new snares to your Beat Box to play around with, even if you are an experienced beatboxer and you already know those sounds it’s still can help understand how to have more control over your mouth. we show different ways to get to the snare sound, that will probably expand your understanding about how to use your muscles inside your mouth and how the sound is been build.

Well the First snare is the classic snare , we teach it with the same technique that we used to explain The Kick Drum. so we advise you to go and see the kick drum tutorial first and
learn how to do the kick before jumping to snare.

To do the throat snare it’s sound is based on the Bongo drum sound and added to this sound the word “Ish” that’s how it’s been made.

The synth snare is symbolized with the letters “Tsh” you really pronounce the letter “T” and then push your air out with the “Sh” in the end, So it’s “T-sh” .

So good luck to you all and keep working hard.

I really like your work – keep on doing, great vids.

I want to mention on thing about ‘your’ synth snare.
Using ‘T-sh’ (or ‘P-sh’) as a base reminds me more of an tiny splash cymbal instead of a snare drum. I was pondering a lot on that. Or… no… wait.. a cymbal is more like ‘k’ attack sound.

But my main topic is how to produce a natural sounding snare sound. On a snare drum, you have got the attack like any drum, because it’s a drum with a drum head. But then you have got the snares on the bottom head which produces the typical snare sound.

It it less an ‘ish’ sound. It’s more crackling like if you try to imitage a piece of wood breakin. Like ‘krrch.’ What dou you think?

I like your work even if i already master these but the synth, I can’t do something similar to you.
We must vocalize the synth snare or no ? if not it’s only “tch”

Could you make some simple beats with this snare ?
