Default Biggest Snare Drum?

What is the biggest snare drum you have seen? If possible, post pics. The DW Ballad Snare is the biggest snare I've seen.

12x15 marching snares, and the 10x16 Ballad snare are the biggest I've seen.

I've seen people use a 10x14 as a main snare, and someone I know has a 10x15 as a "main" on a lot of his bands tunes.

Wow. A 10x16? And this from a company that hyped 23" bass drums too.

What did Don Henley use on those Eagle's songs? That's what I'd get for a ballad snare drum. I bet it won't be 16" either.

If you could get a 10x16 snare, wouldn't it be easier just to take a 16" floor tom, cut a snare bed, and put snares on it? Then you can go even lower....

I'm sure I saw a custom 20" snare, maybe Craviotto, I don't know. I've been trying to find the sound clip ever since.

the deepest i've ever seen would probably be a 14x14 made by twisted sick custom drumworks. They do some pretty cool artwork.

Pearl makes a 16x16 snare.

I couldn't imagine going any bigger than a 14x10, at least for drumset use, anyway.

I am currently using a 1980's Pearl 14x12 USA maple shell snare. I got it cheap on the CL and put on a Pearl Dennis Chambers throw off and 2 brand new 12lug triple flanged hoops (talk about hard to find had to go to Hollywood Pro Drumshop and I'm in AZ!) and a 42 strand strainer. It's sweet!!! if i lower most stands as low as they can go it's right where I play my 14x8 at. It's not for everything but perfect for a loud doom band.

That 16x16 is making me drool! I need to stop being addicted to enormous drums.

Wow the 16 by 16 is almost a thousand bucks. That's bigger than my floor tom too.

Craviotto made a 20" snare for Matt Chamberlin a few years ago

That's the one I was trying to remember, though I thought maybe it was for Jeromy Dupree(?). There was a sound file for it, anybody have the link? Did it have wood hoops?
EDIT: Jerome Dupree's a Tempus guy.
