Combination (Double) Snare

The combination snare is the combination of the classic handclap sound and the inward k sound done in rapid succession done in one breath.

However, there are many variants of the double snare, including the inward ph to inward k snare, and the double percussive k snares (gun cock).

Standard Beatbox Notation (SBN)

{ ^KCLh }

How it's done

Before you try and learn this, go learn the Classic Handclap { ^CLh } and Inward K Snare { ^K }. It'll make your life a lot easier. Go on, I'll wait.

To make the sound:

  1. Start off with the back of your tongue against the top of your mouth
  2. Suck air in a little to get an inward rimshot very similar to the outward rimshot (except it's done inward, surprisingly)
  3. Quickly bring the front of your tongue up as the back comes down and add an inward handclap sound - this step is the one that's likely to trip you up!
