Does anybody out there (Zen, perhaps?) have any experience with the non-aluminum Trick snares. On top of their "standard" aluminum, Trick also makes snares out of brass, copper and stainless stell. I came across a deal on a brushed stainless steel 14x6.5 that I couldn't pass up (that's partly why I'm selling a pair of trick pedals). I've read up on them a bit but haven't played or heard the drum prior, and I'm not at all worried about the sound or performance but would like to hear what anybody else has to say about these snares.
thanks

I had a chance to check 'em out recently...

I saw them at the Trick Facility, didn't play 'em there, but saw them.

Later that day I had a chance to check out a copper and a stainless, real real nice!

I still like my aluminum one, but the stainless is VERY articulate. Copper is dryer.

Nice drums!

It showed up today. I whacked it (the drum, that is) a few times and it sounds great. Sounds great, looks great and heavy as hell; I'm thrilled!
