2 of the snares I use. I just brought the D525 out of retirement and put on PureSound snares. I forgot how good it sounds! (the 'marks' are dust reflecting)

Lots of lovely gear. I have a humble collection of not-so-rare snares, but here's my Beverley Cosmic 21 which, while not rare in the UK, may be interesting to folks back in North America.

It has "that" classic 5" alu sound. Really great snare. One of those "best kept secrets" of the snare world.

Beverley "Cosmic 21"
You can hear it here, on this track (on Spotify).

I created a thread with my collection but I can't resist an opportunity to show off my snares.

14x10 Crazy 8's custom snare "Richard the Red". Probably my favorite snare that I own.

And here's all the gang on the couch. The COB Leedy on the upper right is my other favorite.
