    Realistically, what makes my "Vision" Pearl Sensitone a lesser snare than the Elite version?

    Picked up a Pearl Steel Sensitone because it was uber cheap, came with proper heads in great shape on both sides and Puresound wires. To be honest, I was mostly buying it for the hardware to put on a stave snare I'm building (then I realized metal snares don't use the same mounting screws, but...

    Tama SLP Dry Aluminum vs Acrolite?

    I know used Acrolites are always great value... but that SLP is pretty great value for a new snare. See, Long & McQuade often has the SLP on discount, which only makes it slightly more expensive than a clean used Acrolite... except it comes with a MUCH better throw-off (I have an SLP Fat...
