JoJo's Secret Weapons Snare

I've seen this head over head configuration a couple of different times(Vic Firths rudiment videos) but can't find the darn thing in anyone's online catalog. JoJo plays Sonor, but the drum isn't in their online catalog that I can find. Does anyone know where I can get more info on this snare? Is the top head setup an aftermarket, add-on gizmo? Thanks.

I'm sure the exact model of the snare itself but if you're referring to the "snare" he uses in all the demos, it's a Sabian Quiet Tone practice pad....

...with a black Kevlar marching head on it. It'll either be a Evans MX1 Black marching head or a Remo BlackMax. I can't remember which brand of head he uses.....
Wow!Explains why I couldn't find the darn thing. I never would have guessed to look at a cymbal company.

It has a sound very close to a marching snare which I think is great for practicing.Thanks much for the info.
