    Those are just regular snares that have been pitched up mate.

    Plus add a really (really!) resonant high pass filter around 440/450 hz (in these cases) into some saturation + compression/transient shaping to kill the tail. Done.

    1. Find 2 Snare samples you like
    2. Pitch them up were you want them to hit
    3. Compress,Saturate, Transien Shape and Route to another Channel
    4. Take 2 Snares ( Like a 909 or Something) and Pitch them up that they hit at the same Frequency like the 2 Snare before
    5. EQ out only the Frequency where that bash is (bandpass)
    6. Compress the Shit out of those and route to the same Channel like the first 2 Snares
    7. Add Saturation, EQ, perhaps Compressor and Transient Shaper on your Main Snare Channel
    8. Success

    jeez thats long..... just get a classic "200hz" snare... pitch it up until it peaks at 500hz ... take the tail (if there is any) off ... parallel compression .... done.
    - - - Updated - - -

    and if you don't have any 200hz snares... cop the blokhe4d Vol. 9 sample pack. that has LOADS of them ... slightly different timbres so it doesn't sound identical to mefjus.
