I saw that add, but when I looked it up on MF's website it wasn't there.

I think they sold 'em out.

But an experienced opinion is no substitute for playing an instrument first hand.

of course. I'm gonna try to go to big musicstroe here in lausanne.... I just want a little 10 for effects, I sopke with the guy who will buy that snare and he recommended me a 10 by 6. I'ts gonna have some crack.

I have not a lot of place in my practice room so a 10" could be better.....

I tried a bunch of small snares first hand last weekend. all the 10" ones were neat but really only gave a tiny pop. I picked up a 12x6 Pork Pie lil squealer. it had that high pop too but more depth and fullness to the sound. It sounds great as a side snare, but could also stand on it's own as a main snare.
