Snare beds are the shallow, gradual relief cuts in the bottom bearing edge of a snare drum shell, at the area where the snare wire straps cross the bearing edge to meet the throwoff and butt end. When tightened, the drum head will follow the snare bed contour, allowing the snare wires to make contact with the head in the center of the shell diameter.
The picture below shows a snare bed on the bottom edge of the drum shell.
