Well? How do you like it's sound? I fell in love with my first beer can snare. It was like having a new girlfriend.I have several steel snares, a maple, and a birch snare. I've wanted an aluminum snare for a long time. I like the brightness of steel snares but I always seem to dampen them to cut overtones. It's my understanding that aluminum snares are drier sounding than steel snares so this seemed like a logical choice.
