i'd have to go with the old cliche of a radio king snare circa 1930's something about the sound of rich and krupa that makes it seem like those thing would be magic ,but in the here and now i'm kinda eyeing one of those tama warlord snares

Oh this one is super easy.

Tama Warlord series Valkyrie snare.

The Valkyrie snare is made completely out of maple. 14 PLIES OF MAPLE!! ... FOURTEEN!!...*drools*

Not only does it catch your eye, but it sounds AMAZING!! Absolutely wonderful. Candy to the ears...AND eyes.

Tama Warlord Collection Masai Snare Drum 6"x14"
Swarovski crystals in it?! wow....
Tama owns. no, they PWN!!! $600 snare drum, more expensive than even Mike Portnoy's and Lars Ulrich's!!!
It's 12 ply, and I must say, the Valkyrie is also amazingly awesome!!!
I proudly play with Tama (snare drums), PDP, Sabian, LP, Paiste, Vic Firth, Aquarian (bass and snare heads), and Remo (tom heads)brands! My biggest drummer influences are Mic Fleetwood, Nicko McBrain, and Mike Portnoy.

Love of my life and bane of existence to have again is the Premier Heavy Rock Nine. 9 inch deep Birch shell with brass wrap and bering edges. Absoltely the loudest, fattest crack and tone I have ever witnessed. The one I owned was given the name "Death Cut" in honor of its effect if I hit it just right.

That's a very very nice drum. All I ever hear about Odery are good things. Really good things!

I want one of their zabumbas. Check one out. Man, this is one nice zabumba!

Image

How about this one in 16 X 9". AWESOME!

Image

The Airto signature snare looks interesting. Hmmmmm, I have just emailed them for a quote! :D

i just bought a 13x7 pork pie vented snare. that was one of my dream snares. i love the thing. i've only practiced on it a few times now, but i'm in love.
i think my next snare will be around a 10x5 acrylic/clear pork pie, vented.
i love the orange county snares, they sound awesome and are ultra-loud.
there are so many really cool snares, i shouldn't have even answered this one. i want to keep talking, but i'm done.
good luck, philapfg
