Default My Snare collection

OK, Here is my snare collection, Certainly nothing compared to some others on here, but It gives me a wide pallette of sound and color. I'm not sure the order but there are 9 snares and are as follows. 6.5X14 Brady in a wandoo Burl finish. 5.5X10 ddrum side snare. 4X14 pearl "Marvin Smitty Smith" copper snare. 5X14 Ludwig acrolite, (that needs a cleaning, got it from a trader mag for peanuts). 5.5X14 slingerland chrome snare. 6X14 Gretsch catalina Maple. 5.5X14 taye hardwood. 6X14 Pork Pie "Pig Lite" acrylic snare. 6.5X13 Yamaha musashi oak.

Not the greatest collection but they are mine, my primary's are the Brady and Pearl copper they both sound amazing. The Brady though a bit more amazing.

A very nice mix of sounds I'm sure. Oak, copper, acrylic, aluminum, etc....wow. My two fav are also the Pearl and Brady. The Brady is a real stunner.

how is that little Ddrum? If I would want an extra snare I'd want a little snare like that, to use it as a side snare.

It doesn't have a lot of depth but it does have a great little crack, tuned slightly down it offers a fairly warm pop, great for accents, or even to mix up between verse and chorus, etc. I had a 6X10 pdp that sounded great too, but was stolen from me.

Thanks for the responses, the Brady has long been my dream and I finally broke down and bought one with my wife's Blessing.

It's an awesome collection Pete, dont be so cruel on you.

Just the Brady by itself is a snare collection...

I particularly like, obviously the Brady but also the Yamaha Mushashi and the Ludwig Acrolite.

A+

(p.s.: I lest a comment on your myspace page regarding that collection :-) )

Hey. Love that Brady. I hear lots of good things about the Ludwig Acrolite. Can I ask for your take on it, say compared to the Brady (a sound I am familiar with). The Pork Pie is something I'm also interested in. You've got a cool collection! Thanks for posting.

I'd have to agree that the Brady and the Pearl copper are the stand outs in your collection. That wood veneer on the Brady is just amazing. Must be awesome to have so many sound options to choose from every time you play.

The Acrolite has a lot drier more pronounced pop, I haven't chaned the heads or experimented much with it yet, it still has the original heads as far as I can tell. Where as you know the Brady is very warm with a lot of mid range punch.

The pork pie acrylic is VERY Bright sounding, a Lot of attack.

Thanks for the comments, the Brady and the Pearl are by far my faves too.
