Default Re: 8 lug snare drums. Thoughts?

I have a 4x14 10 lug custom maple that has a more open sound than my 8 lug 67 Acro. I think they have similar tuning ranges too. So for me personally, it's not something I consider when buying a snare.

Shallow wide bed, modern edges. Sensitivity to the edge of the drum. Wide tuning range, an excellent choice by many. From 1962-72 approximately 40,000 total units produced. Sizes were 5 inch, 6.5 inch x 14... in wood and Chrome over brass.
Current values range from
200-300 for a COB 5x14
450-700 for a COB 6.5x14
450-1200 for a wood version in either size, depending on condition, color, size.
By many who play and or collect vintage Rogers drums of the period, the Powertone is their preferred snare drum. The Tower does not fall far behind.
An excellent choice in a vintage, high quality snare drum.
OMG gorgeous snares, wow like candy!

Fantastic collection, beautiful drums. I thought a COB 5x14 actually was worth more than that, but I haven't really looked for some time.
