Sticks and heads. There's no need for me to spend unnecessarily when nothing but new heads and sticks are needed to make a sound. No new cymbal, throne, pedal or any other googah is going to change the way I play after 45 years. Occasionally I look at a "pretty" snare. I tap it a few times and ... move on. I'm still going to tune it to sound like what I want - just like my other snares.
