    Here is my favorite go to snare at the moment:
    Tama Starclassic Performer Birch/Bubinga.
    14 x 6 with Diecast rims.
    Sounds great at every tuning, lots of crack and plenty of body.

    Also I see your a fellow Ohioan lol Same here...My go to snare is a Joey Jordison Snare, and IDK if I got a special one, because I can get every tuning to sound good with it...I wanna buy a 14x8 snare, not sure what brand, but I'm going to do some looking around...

    Default supraphonic

    This is my 14x5 Ludwig Supraphonic stamped November 18, 1968. I picked it up a week ago for about 50 dollars with a handful of other vintage Ludwig and Leedy drums that i need to restore yet. This particular drum is all original except for the snares and heads. It has become my workhorse and i don't know if I'll ever need another aluminum snare.

    Quite impressive sir! Ludwig snares are probably some of the best snares i've ever heard!

    My new DW 14x6.5 VLT "Time Machine" snare. It is deep, resonant, loud and a little ringy. It Replaced my DW 14x6 10&6, and honestly the two drums are worlds apart.

    Lacking in the catchy phrase department.

    Oooh Looks musically "tasty", my friend! Quite a unique diameter but no doubt it sounds good being a Pearl Snare Drum!
