I've read some great reviews about this snare, and was looking for something that would compliment my 6.5x14 StarClassic B/B snare, so I just ordered one. I like to keep the B/B tuned kinda low for a nice deep blues/rock pop. I will probably keep the COB tuned higher for that classic Stewart Copeland Police sound, and a little more progressive sound (although I've heard it's pretty versatile so we'll see). One thing I've noticed is that it is spec'd with the following snare mounts: MUS80A/MUS80B. I've seen pictures though where the butt plate is not MUS80B. The one I ordered didn't specify (and no pictures of butt side), so I'm hopping it is the MUS80B. I'd love to here more feedback about this snare.
