Default Is the Tama Praetorian snare the same as the Bell Brass of old?

Rented "Elvin Jones Jazz Machine" dvd from 1991 over the weekend. Holy smokes! I don't have to tell anyone here the genius of Elvin but if you get a chance to check it out I am sure you will throughly enjoy.

One thing that stands out is the beautiful sound of his snare. It's a Tama Bell Brass that just sings. It's really LOUD that's for sure but it seems to be whats needed for the large venue.

I know the old Bell Brass snare are sought after and very expensive. Tama still makes a bell brass called the Praetorian. It's part of the warlord series which seem to be marketed to metal players. Just wondering if anyone know of any difference between the old and new?

Not that I could afford a $2000 snare anyway.
