I know the search function sucks but it can't be that hard to find the numeres posts regarding this topic and so many like it! I'll start this honestly by saying I have not played a JJ snare. That being said it's a steel snare! Not maple or birch or brass. It's steel! Other than loud how"good" will it sound? Go play it. If you like it and want to fuel the industry by spending $$ on a piece of steel with some cool looking logo's on it have at it. Do you realy think JJ is using this POS on his kit? All you youngin's need to learn about marketing so you can save some money. If you really feel the need, spend your parents money on it. I'm sure when it comes out of your own pocket you'l look a little harder at what else is around that's really worth the money. OK, rant over. I feel better.
You have a point, most people would buy it because of the logo. And you're also right about him probably not playing it on his set. I've never been a fan of Jordison, I just like the way the snare sounds with the heads I have on it. It's not going to have all the tone or musicality that a maple snare has.
And when I bought it, it DID come out of my own pocket. It cost me my entire salary that I had gotten working at my friend's farm over the summer
