Mine is a mid 60's no-name snare and I know that it needs new heads.




p.s. I have cleaned it since I took the picture.

Is that a rip on the last...I dunno...5 Metallica albums? St. Anger has to be the worst drum sound ever recorded.

I have quit a few, but these are probably my most used.

Tama Starclassic full Bubinga 14" x 5 1/2" with Evans Power Center Reverse Dot batter head and Evans Hazy 300 resonant head..



DW Classic 14" x 5" with magnetic throw-off and three position butt plate with Mahogany/poplar shells and re-ring. The heads are DW (Remo) Ambassador batter head with DW (Remo) Ambassador Hazy resonant head.



And if you can spot it, since I don't have a close-up, a Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute 14" x 5 1/2" with Evans Power Center Reverse Dot batter head and Evans Hazy 300 resonant head.

Here are my two workhorses. I bought the Musashi from Gruntersdad a while back, and it has been my mainstay, but I've been using the Big Black Porkpie quite a bit lately. The jury is still out on it though...

All these metal Ludwigs got me excited. I have owned quite a few in the past, and this thread made me want one again. Today I stumbled across this one and for a mere $100, it followed me out the front door.

I run two snares. The first is a DW 14x5 solid maple with my custom lacquer burst over Mapa Burl. The second is a Dunnett 13x6.5 titanium polished with a Copper Candy lacquer.

Up until recently, this was the workhorse:

Dixon 14" x 4" (iirc) Amazing sound, for what ended up being a little over AUD $200 for the snare + a Fyberskyn head.

New workhorse is this here fella:




Sonor Benny Greb Signature Snare - Scandanavian Beech, 13" x 5.75"

Lovely snare, got it for much less than retail too. (can't complain about that!)

That Beech is beautiful, too bad they choose to cover up so much of the wood with those double lugs, I think it would look cleaner, be easier to carry and probably be a little more resonant if they would of used a double ended single casing. Although the resonance issue doesn't mean all that much for a snare. Still a beaut though, congrats.

Yeah, I have thought it was a little cluttered, but the fact that they've managed to get the company logo used as the lugs makes up for it. In the end, I have a cool snare that I'm very much proud of owning, and it sounds great. :D

My current "Workhorse" snare is my 14" Mapex Meridian Maple in Root Beer Burst.
Heads are Remo Diplomat resonant and a VERY beat up Remo Ambassador. however, it sounds awesome! I can get almost any sound I want and I'm pretty sure I can live with the snare for along time and it's pretty awesome!
I can use it until I get a Black Panther Fastback, Sledgehammer or a Blaster or even a Gretsch Maple Woodhooped snare. Saying that, I could always just get Maple rims on my snare ;)

Check it out below! (and a bonus pictures of me looking weird).

Oh, man! Is that the COB? If so I used to have that snare. Stupid me sold it. What an epic mistake! They're re-issued again, but still...

For me, it's a run-of-the-mill, but never disappointing LM402. My only other snare is a Pearl Sensitone Elite 6.5x14 Brass. It's pretty awesome, too, but I'm looking for a way to make it secretly morph into an LB417 since that's what it really wants to be anyway.

I believe that it is a COB. Not 100% sure though.
it came with my mid 70s "Monster" kit.
It's a model 4165
Perhaps someone can enlighten us.
It is thick and heavy! There is nothing tinny about it.

Chrome over Ludalloy. Chrome flaked away, so it's wrapped with some purple sparkle. I've added the P-86 strainer and die cast hoops. Batter head is Aquarian Hi-Energy. Later this summer, I'm going to re-re-finish it and add tube lugs.

This drum can do anything.
What a great idea! I love the way this drum looks.

I'd say no, not a big volume difference. It just speaks with such a clear voice.
I did a test yesterday with all my snares, and the order in which I like them is:

Pearl Eric Singer Signature 14 x 6.5 (maple, ply)
Pearl Masters Studio snare 14 x 6.5 (birch, ply) (a very close 2nd)
79 Ludwig 14 x 6.5 Supra SS (chrome over Ludalloy)
2005 14 x 5 brass on brass Ludwig BB (black nickel plated brass)
Canopus Zelkova 14 x 6.5 (hollowed out from a Zelkova tree)

I think I prefer wood snares. I just realized this last night.
