I've got an N&C piccolo snare that I've used on a lot of sessions the last couple years. Super thick 3mm steel shell. Sounds great with the right heads. The snare's not "technically" mine, a producer friend lent it to me for a session a year and a half ago, and whenever I try to return it he's always like "eh, I don't need it right now." hahaha. Soooo It's now been featured on 3 or 4 records I've done.
