You'll blow your face off!

I'm looking for a POWERFUL snare, thats also reasonably sensitive. Any brand, that I could get new or used less than $300 new or used. Not the Joey Jordison, something that would go well with a chrome-on-bright red kit.

yamaha oak custom snare in their "red oak" finish. I saw a great band called Savannah and the dude had amazing sounding oak yammies. This show was about 5 years ago and I still remember clearly that his drums sounded pretty devastating.

I just picked up a Peace SD-130.

Killer snare! It has a nice range and can make your ears bleed if you want it too. I would look into something like that. I also have a red kit, and the brass color compliments it.

I have a thick steel shelled snare for sale if your want. It's a lot like the brass drum, but a little dryer, not as much ring. I just put it up in the classifieds. PM me if your interested.
