with a tuning key and your ear. i really dont know what else to tell you. a snare sounds like a snare depending on it's size

i once had that problem, and the snare would rattle after i hit the snare, my solution: tightening the batter head skin. this got rid of the rattle. and my stock snare sounds beautiful.
