Here is the Black Magic that belongs to my wife and I. I'm looking to purchase a Mapex snare to go with our new Mapex Saturn V. Any suggestions or should I just go with the matching MH snare.

It's me again and again something new!

This time, new baby in collection, DW Collector's Thin Aluminium 14x6,5 .

Didn't have time to try it out yet, but soon i will.



I've been rocking an 8x14 Brady block. (Or an Acro, but there's already a million pictures of those)

I plan by years end to add a 6.5x13 Guru with wood hoops (they just don't know about it yet...)

oh man, I love all these different snares to see. Now, I need to add another room onto my perfect house, the snare room! LOL.

I'll try and put up some pics of mine soon. I own 4 + 2 micro snares. All newer models except for one of them. That one is from a defunct company and dates to 70s. You must wait until you see it to know!
