Anyone digging this snare drum sound as much as me?

Check out this snare drum sound from a snippet of a solo that Jason bonham did. I'm pretty sure it's a Ludwig 6.5x14 supraphonic with coated emperor over hazy ambassador. I don't think he uses any muffling. I'm not sure about the snares (42 strand or standard 20 strand). Obviously the production of the drum through the PA colors it nicely, but holy crap, I love this snare drum sound. Anyone else agree?

It's a very ambient room so the drum has room to spread out. Definitely a cool sound, like his Dads kinda.

Yeah, the room probably has alot to do with the sound. I just love the pop and how it just opens up even more when he accents on the rolls he's doing. Awesome rock snare sound, very powerful.
