    Default Three Snares I love.....

    Noble and Cooley Alloy cast 150th anniversary. Nodal point lugs. One of the most responsive drums I have ever owned. Sensitivity out the yin yang. Flanged rims. Rimshots that will split your head.

    Yamaha Paul Leim Signature - 14 X6.5. Chrome plated brass shell, gold plated lugs. This drum is a fat, studio snare. Tuned low it rocks like no other. Throaty, booming voice.

    Noble and Cooley Alloy cast - a very neutral drum. Cast rims. This drum is another recording studio staple.

    Default DW Julio Figueroa Signature

    This drum is another personal favorite. I have this sucker cranked up so high, into the piccolo range. However, it has a depth and body to the sound that makes it much better than the piccolo. Very slight metallic ring. If you hit it near the rims, you get an almost entirely different sound, a sort of bell-like ding. Love this drum. Tried to sell it, couldn't get enough to part with it. Glad I kept it....

    Default Pearl Master's Studio Limited Edition Birch 10 ply

    Limited run of 10 ply birch made for Guitar Center. I recovered in red sparkle holographic to match my Red Sparkle Monster. Very loud snare, not a lot of tonal character or responsiveness. Fits high volume situations, and little else.

    Default Tama G Maple and Ludwig Black Beauty

    Here is the G Maple in Cherry Black, on my Exotix III kit. Close to the above mentioned G Maple but a different color and just a little bit less perfect. I put Powersound snares on this one, that helped it out a lot. Still, I regret selling the orange G Maple.

    Also, my hand hammered Ludwig black beauty with tube lugs and flanged rims. Any serious drummer must own a black beauty. This one is the best of the Black Beautys, I think. Bought at the House of Guitars in Rochester New York. Love this drum. Volume, responsivenes, a bit ringy and lively. Somewhat similar to the DW but can be tuned much lower.

    Default Dave Weckl 5X13 Maple

    One of the most versatile snares I own. Two strainers gives you three sounds, Strainer A (loose), STrainer B (tight) or A and B (combo).

    If I have to go to a live gig and bring only one snare, this is one of my top choices.

    6 ply 6mm maple. Gold plated lugs. A beautiful looking drum.

    This one has a huge sweet spot, very fat sound for a great back beat. Very responsive, never chokes.

    I have come to believe, 13" is a great size for a snare, after owning this one.

    Default DW Exotic Spider Pine with Tube Lugs

    Matched one of the DW Exotix sets I once owned. Never really played it, it was part of a set I flipped on e:bay a while back. Nice looking drum.

    Default Pearl MHX Masters Custom Mahogany 6.5 and 5" snares.

    This set came with both sizes, the 5" and the 6.5" by 14" shells. 4 ply mahogany. Flipped the drums set and the two snares in 3 separate auctions on e:bay.

    The mahogany sound as might be expected favors the low range of the frequency spectrum and these drums both sounded best when tuned loose.

    I will talk later about my Exotix III, bubinga, which has a very similar tonal character. Does not sound good tuned in the higher range - but down low it has a big, open ambience (especially with the snares loose). Sounds like G Love and Special Sauce.

    Anyway, since I am not going to sell the Exotix III, these had very limited use for me. Good looking drums, though.

    Default Master's MRX 6.5" by 14" Snare

    This one has a color that some love, but I personally do not. Purple Storm with black hardware. However, I do have one of these in Midnight Fade, which is an amazing utility snare. Great crack, Fat sweet spot and wonderful rim shots.

    Default Pearl Free Float Piccolo

    I am not and never will be a piccolo fan. The sound is too thin, the usages are too limited. I would take the DW Brass cranked up any day if I want the high pitched crack.

    However, I do like free floats. This one I sold, the next one I kept
