Misusing "Snare"

What's This?

If you've been linked to this, you probably made a language mistake and whoever sent this to you cared enough to point it out. The best thing to do is read the details and see where you went wrong.

Description

"Snare drum" is often shortened to "snare", especially among musicians. However, a "snare" is not the same as a snare drum.

Snare drums are named for long metal wires in the body that give it a "noisier" quality than other drums. These wires are the "snares".
