I'm thinking about buying a snare with that sound. I'm really want a 13'' x 7'' and I'm going to put an Evans HD Genera Dry head on it. but what shell material, thickness, and bearing edges will achieve that? Maybe even the resonant head and snare wires...
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated!

What sort of budget do you have? There are snares out that that would do the job well, but you could spend thousands of dollars. Or you could get everything you want spending a couple hundred.
I have a 13 by 4 incher from www.spiritdrums.com. Solid shell ironwood, more crack than a plumber's butt, $600.

Thanks rendezvous, and yes you can see by my avatar that I like this snare. In the Your Playing section I put up a small sound byte, and since that byte I have added a hazy 300 head and some 20 strand Soundblaster snares. I think this drum may be on sale right now at Musiciansfriend. Good Luck.

Yamaha Musashi Oak! It's not massively warm, but it sounds great and it's not going to break the bank. It's a 13x6.5 which is enough to have a good cut and crack, but still maintain the depth. It's a quality snare, the only thing that lets it down slightly is the throw off, which isn't a major issues, it's functionally ok. It just feels a little cheap in comparison to the rest of the hardware. The stock heads are great too, it's just an all around class act.

MusiciansFriend has a DD Drum Canadian maple at 13x7. ITs got die cast hoops and only costs $160. Man, sometimes I wish I live in the US so I could order those cheap drums.
