Thanks for tip Wave, I should have bought it when I had the chance. A local guy had one up for sale for $180. Barely used too. It was about the time I bought my Panther kit so money was a bit tight right then. I'll keep an eye out for one on sale.That snare is IMO really great for jazz (!), funk and pop. I have that one and it sounds very very similar to the good old Luddi IMO, but is way better built (much better strainer). If you can get it, buy it. You won't regret it, I guess. That snare got great reviews everywhere - for a reason. A gem if you ask me.
They're still available stateside but I think the price has actually gone up on them. They were at $299.US early summer but now I'm seeing them around $345-369. Supply and demand I guess.There are very few of those still available in Europe. You will probably need to check if international shipping is possible. Those SLPs are hard to find on the used market.
