Snare drums used in pipe bands are similar in construction to standard marching band snare drums, with two key differences: 1) the drum has an additional set of snares, directly under the batter (top) head and 2) the snares under the bottom head are made of coiled steel wires, similar to a drumset. These differences tend to give the pipe band snare drums a "snappier" snare sound, emphasizing the higher frequencies of the drum.
