Some great stuff there Jon. Talk about variation! :) But this is the one I gravitate to. Not so sure I'd go for die cast hoops on a cocobolo steam bent shell though.

P.S. I met up with Marcus DeMobray last year. Funny guy, who typifies the classic English eccentric :)

I've been in love with high pitched snares ever since I first listened to City of Evil by Avenged Sevenfold. I found this here used 12" firecracker at Guitar Center over the weekend and I fell in love with it. It projects REALLY well given its size and gives that perfect *pop*. Happy early birthday present from me to me :) My old snare is now been dubbed to my 80's snare due to it's low tuning and heavy muffling. I can remove the gels for a punky sound too.

I have to say, I've never been much for Aquarian, but this Studio X- Z100 coating works on this little drum.

I normally don't like diecast on a dense shell, but that's how the drum came so I gave it a try. It has a great crack/pop, which has been useful on some tracks (check out Weird Al "I'll Sue Ya" for the best example - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeXQBHLIPcw )

P.S. I met up with Marcus DeMobray last year. Funny guy, who typifies the classic English eccentric :)

Never met him, but when I first saw the snare at the shop near Camden Town, they knew nothing about it, or him. Apparently didn't even know it had originated locally, and I knew nothing about it other than it was unusual. Only after returning home did I learn about Marcus, and that when my wife and I went to the Bermondsey market, we were probably just steps from his studio! I'd love to meet him someday.

The best snare out of the many I have owned, a Mapex Saturn 14x5.5. Peace and goodwill.

Ok seriously Bermuda can you please post a video of the Famous Drums Tubulated Aperture prototype snare??? At least tell us what it sounds like. That is just crazy looking!

The "Ventastric" snare was really just an experiment in construction. It's completely dovetailed with no fasteners (except to attach lugs, throwoff & butt) and without too much attention to edges or the resulting sound. It plays, but has a very open, somewhat rattly sound.

Some of those collections are amazing! Though I have you all beat, mine glows in the dark. :p Morgan Rose signature. Had no idea who he was until after I bought it, but it was the one I liked the sound og the most when I spent a day at the local GC going through everything marked under $200 (my budget at the time). This one was marked $150 (and apparently, was supposed to be $350 I later. Found out! Score!).

Apparently, I am not going to be able to post pictures while posting from my phone. I will get them up this evening.

While my collection is nowhere near the size of many of the other users (which are all amazing by the way!), here's my humble little set. I feel like I can cover most, if not all, the sounds I need with these just from different tuning, heads and snare-wire combos.

Ludwig:

14 x 5 Supraphonic
14 x 5 Black Beauty

Shells that I made:

14 x 5.5 Stave Canadian Maple
14 x 6 Stave African Bubinga
