The one I liked the most out of the 3 I've played is the Spartan. It's the one with the steel shell. I liked how ringy it was (I love that in a metal snare) but it also had a nice tuning range and great senstivity for brushes, and I like the way it looked out of all of them. It was very close to the Ludwig Supraphonic I normally use and the drum I compare all other metal snares to when trying new drums. The only one I haven't played is the bell-brass Praetorian model but judging from Tama's other bell brass models, it probably sounds fantastic. Expensive, but fantastic.
