    My New Snare!

    After a lot of suggestions and thinking, I decided to go with a Pork Pie Patina Brass 13 x 7 model. It’s such a great snare man, lots of depth and low end while still maintaining a nice thwap! Highly recommend! oh yea, should mention, Evans UV2 on the batter side! ;)

    I'm looking at getting a metal snare. Any recommendations?

    I've never owned a metal snare before, so I want something darker sounding than steel or aluminum in the <$500 range , i'm leaning towards the pork pie 14 x 6.5 patina brass snare, but I wanted to know if you guys have some better recommendations.
