Its just a basic mapex snare, probably really cheap. When i bought my set, the guy at the music shop threw it in for my "shell pack". Im in the process of sanding it now. and hopfully staining it tommorow. Ill have pics when im done :D

That's a satin flame wrap. It should come off pretty easily, since that style of wrap is pretty thin. Hopefully they didn't use contact cement to adhere it to the shell.
