Snail are a brand which are relatively new to the UK. Our first batch was eagerly anticipated, having seen the quality of the samples. And it did not disappoint! The styling of the range is very good, the materials used are good, and the finishing appears to be excellent. Considering these points, as well as the very good quality of sound and the fact that they come with free gigbags, we would have to say that they are class leading instruments at their price points.
This zebrawood model is a stunner. Although laminate wood, it makes a very nice sound with zingy trebles, warm bass and a very clean and clear midrange which does not sound muddy even when strummed hard. And the neck feels nice in the hand, the body is nice and lightweight - there are good things happening in the Snail factory!
