Maybe a new snare, at best. I probably need another, anyhow. I just got a new kit. I just want to get that more 'focused' sound

Yeah, exactly. I already know that I can make my snare sound good. I just want to give it that little extra

Drumfactorydirect.com has them for about $50 a piece and shipping would be free if you spend over $100.
I was thinking that just the other day, right before I spent my hoop money on a $120 metronome. It was probably a better investment, though. Tired of using phone apps and such. That's probably how I'll go about it, though. I've found a few decent snares on Ebay with die cast hoops for $100-$130.

I did find a similar deal, I think at drumbuilder.com. About $50 a piece, and I think they have the same shipping deal.
