"Like"? I absolutely love'em! 8)

Also, I'm quite pleased with my wooden (maple) Pearl Free Floating 14" x 5,5". I tune it quite high in pitch, almost like a piccolo, but the depth of the drum make a richer sound in my opinion. Perfect as a side-kick to my main snare drum!

I'd love to have a 8" maple FreeFloater for that really fat backbeat. I saw one once on eBay but didn't have money to bid... :|

8'' freefloaters are, unfortunately, discounted. Now the only 8''deep Pearl snare is Vinnie Paul signature. IMO it doesn't look very good but it's the less expensive 8'' maple pro snare on the market
dim my eyes if they should compromise

Love to get my hands on a Craviotto. Or the Ludwig Supraphonic 14"x6.5" the most recorded snare in the world.

yes I know that... propably Pearl would made a 14x8" masterworks snare for me but I don't even want to know the price of that :)

i didnt even know that he had a signature snare...but based on his sound its probably a pretty warm, full bodied snare that blends more than it cuts. i may be wrong but to me that what his cymbals do and thats how his overall sound is identified, at least in my book.

I got my dream snare when i finally snagged the Tico Torres Signature, which is basically an 14"x6" Ultracast Free Floater. Awesome tone, really cutting and the loudest drum i've ever heard.

However, i really like the sound of the new Ahead snares and i'm gonna be investing in one of those soon enough and i've been working on a Pearl Masterworks combo for a while now, a 10" and a 14" that would go together perfectly :D

While I am the proud parent of 20 beautiful snares my dream snare has yet to be made.I won't disclose exactly how I want it ( as I have architecture under my belt and have it all drawn up ) but I wanta Maple and Mahog snare that has the internal capacity to house either copper,aluminum,steel,or brass in small sheets that ( 4 per drum ) that can be swapped and if desired have one of each inside the drum.The warmth of wood with the balls of metal all in one.Thats my dream snare.

I know I'm probably a little bias in this department. But I believe I work for one of the best drum companies out there Craviotto Drum Co. And I have my dream snare( one of the perks)

8x14 curely maple solid split lug snare with a blue oil finish.
