What about the Sensitone Elite aluminium snare???
Is it a newer product???
further infos???
thanks

from Mike Dolbear NAMM 2006 news:

"Pearls biggest releases were some new snares. The Sensitone Elite are metal shells of Steel, Aluminium, Brass and Phosphor Bronze and are thicker than the older Sensitone shells. Each comes in 14x5” (not 5.5” as before) and 14x6.5” and have a certain ‘classic’ look to them. They are certainly heavy and sounded very crisp."

that and the copper have been added to the sensitone line up and a great call on pearl to add onto the best value priced snares on the market.

Aluminium! A cheap aluminium snare! Based on the Sensitone Brass I already own, this should be a good one!

Woo!

Sonically nothing, but way better corrosion resistance. :)
