If you ever get a chance give the 1960's anondized Acrolite's a shot.
In my opinion, and I'm a Supra Phonic kinda person, they are one of the best snares around.........
Got the Kit set-up with the first configuration I'll try. I played a SuperClassic Outfit (White Marine Pearl) from 1969 to '78 and have been going back to my roots with a one up, one down set-up but figured since I had them I might just as well include the 13 & 14..........................
Snare: Mid 80's Hammered Shell Supra-Phonic 400 (5 x 14) w/Coated Ambassador
Heads: Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2's over Classic Clears w/Texture Coated SuperKick II "over" Ludwig Heavy Reso.
Cymbals: 14" K Custom Dark Hi-Hats, 16" A Med Thin Crash, 17" K Custom Fast Crash, 18 Paiste 2002 Ride, 20" K Custom Med Ride.
10" early Sabian Splash (smaller Zildjian type bell)
