If you want ('need') to sound like a million other drummers past, than do get a 400/402.

The BUDWISER of snare drums.
Am I wrong to take offense to this post ? Which snare drum one uses does not dictate what they sound like. The drummer is mainly responsible for that. Supra's are great snares, loaded with character, IMO. And even if you don't think so, using one isn't going to automatically make you sound like everyone else. Is a guitar player going to sound dated, and like everyone else, if he plays a Strat ? This is just silly.
