I have a 14' x 6' anton fig signature series with the fat wood hoops....great bottom end and depth but not that sensitive. great for hard rock. Ive got an american made pork pie vented snare 13' x 5' SICK 14 ply...so loud and sensitive...pork pie makes the best kicks and snares in my opinion. Little squeelers are manufactured, the american ones are hand made in a shop of like 6 guys! very custom and they sound terrific!

I usually play Ludwig snares but I have been rockin' a Gretsch 6.5. My Ludwig Brass on Brass 6.5 that I ordered in Jan! is gonna be here this week (so I'm told) so that will be my main snare for a while

At the minute I have my Starclassic Birch Bubinga 14" x 5.5" snare and a Tama Hammered Steel 12" x 4"

Starclassic snare is awesome and I'm happy with the steel as a cheap aux. I do want to get some more snares though, kind of developing a fetish!

There was a really nice Walnut Tama snare with Cherry Wood hoops on ebay a while back and it looked lush. Kinda wish I'd gotten it as I've never seen one before or since.

Heres a short list off the top of my head:

OCDP 6x14 20 ply maple Vented w/ offset lugs (my current live drum)
Tacoma Jay Douglas Custom 5x14 maple (my live backup)
Keplinger 7x12 Stainless Steel
Purecussion 3x14 maple piccolo
Tama 8x14 Imperialstar
Gretsch 4x14 roundbadge (circa 1930ish by closest approximation, I'm not a vintage guy)

Just ordered a Rocketshells 6x14 Carbon Fiber
and just sold a Ddrum 7x13 Dominion Maple

I think I have a few more but nothing worth mentioning.

I play 2 snares. ( even though i own 3 ) one of them is from my first kit. *verve* Yamaha Stage Custom 14x5.5 birch. and my Black Panther 12x7 Maple/cherry. They're Both great. But I like the yamaha better, It's got the mid rangy pop i like.
