That might be the case, if it is then 400/402 is the snare to get, but every Tom Dick and Harry has one, or will be getting one and Im perfectly OK with that, works for me.
I've been around the circle more than once. The drum is too light for me, the playing feel is not comfortable IMO, plus the dated sound... Im out, been out for years. Too many other good choices to try, find to love.
