show off your snare

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)

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.
