Yes, it shouldn't be too hard to find these snare drums in stores still. In a way, it is still in the Pearl product line with the newer SensiTone Elite snare drum line. The brass shells with the black nickel coating should be very close to it.

Just confirmed this on Gretsch site:-

January 11, 2006
Gretsch Drums Welcomes Steve Ferrone Back to the Family

Breaking News....
Gretsch Drums proudly welcome legendary drummer Steve Ferrone back to the Gretsch family of artists!

Wonder if my Ferrone snare will be a collectable or just another Signature product where the drummer has decided to go to another company??

I did not buy it because Steve played one (he is a great drummer) but I do feel for the kids out there who save up for the stuff their hero's play only to find they have moved on to another drum/cymbal company after just buying something. Must piss them off. **$
