My favorite snares are simple. I have top-of-the-line drum kits, but when it comes to snare, I stay with simple.

I have 2 Ludwig Rocker(mahogany) drums from the 70's that are super cheap entry level drums but sound and feel fat as hell. I also have a Chad Smith, a 3 by 13 steel piccolo and a Gretch Catalina maple. I think it's ridiculous how much they charge for some snares. I think it's unnecessary. If I can achieve what I want with what I use, why would i pay outrageous prices. I bet a Pork Pie can sound just as good as any expensive snare...especially when mic'd live or recording.
I've had Black Beautys and Bronze and Maple top-of-the-line snares but I really like 8 lug snares.
Hahahaha ...I bet everybody is cringing.
