Formula for how many snare drums you need

I have nine snares but at present rotate between just two, namely, Dunnett titanium (14*6.5j and Noonan maple (14*6.5). I don’t really need nine snares but have just accumulated them.

Likewise. I've been playing my 14" Tama SLP G-maple exclusively for about 9 months, with the exception of the comparison videos I made last winter. It was fun and informative to do (actually experience first-hand all the snares).

My hope is to actually write and record to an original drum-less tune and marry each snare to a different sound/feel.

I think that I have about thirty, I have not counted recently. I'm always looking for another. And yes, they all get used.
