Nice set! I went with Silver Oyster Pearl as well.I went with the RN2-E8246 four-piece shell pack in Silver Oyster Pearl. I use the Mike Johnston Brooklyn Standard snare with the set. The Brooklyn Standard is a great sounding snare. This is my first wood shell snare. I have always played metal shells either steel or aluminum. The Renowns are a great sounding drum and I'm convinced the 30-degree bearing edges have a lot to do with it. I am unable to play them for the next couple of weeks as I just had surgery on my left hand. What kit do you play?
My shell pack included the maple snare but I added a Brooklyn steel snare afterwards so that like you, I would have options. I hear good things about the Brooklyn Standard.
