I agree with this :-). I love the 402. My other favorite is a 6.5x14" Ludwig Vistalite snare from 2004. And it may sound like heresy, but I like the supra and the vistalite better than my 6.5x14 Black Beauty.
But not everyone has to love a Supra 402 or 400. Pearl Sensitones are great - I also still have a Pearl Export steel snare that has a great crack to it. And a DW Classic series snare is a beautiful thing...there is lots to love...
