I think it's gonna be either 6.5" x 14" or 6.5" x 13".

Any suggestions?
I'm very happy with my 13 by 4 snare, as the 13 inch size gives great focus and snap and it's very sensitive at 4 inches.

If I had to do it over again, I would go with the 13 by 6.5 snare, though. I would like a little more throat from the snare. An ironwood shell gives so much sensitivity that I know a 6.5-inch-deep snare will still be incredibly sensitive, even though it's almost two-thirds deeper than a 4-incher.
