#AudiotentTip 170. EQing Snare Drums.
Here’s a few quick tips on how to eq a snare drum. Start with rolling off the extreme lows so that the snare isn’t interfering with your kick and sub bass. Somewhere around 80hz should do the trick. Next add a gentle boost around 7kHz and high shelf around 12kHz to let the snare cut through. Lastly add a boost around 200-250hz for the body of the snare.
Always A/B with your volume levels matched to make sure you’re improving the sound. Bear in mind this is only a starting point and you should always judge your eqing decisions on the source.
