This is really a subjective issue and really depeds on quite a few of other variables. I do like the snare sound on Buckwheat Zydeco's Rounder album. It works for that Genera.

His drum is balls.

I'd have to say, probably Jimmy Chamberlin's snares he used throughout Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. all of them had huge body and tremendous ring.
Setup:
Dw 4 piece, Black Velvet
Steve Ferrone Signature Snare
Sabian Vault Series and Zildian A custom Cymbals
DW hardware

I think the snare on August Burns Red's Thrill Seeker is great. Their new CD, Messengers, has great drums osunds, too, but Thrill Seeker is just so gritty, and real, I love it.

If you're talking about Nat Jolivette's snare drum sound I have to jump in here and agree... He's a pretty simple player with a relentless groove and his snare drum sound is amazing! I don't know if it was the best snare drum I ever heard, but it certainly was exceptional now that I think about it.

I saw Buckwheat Zydeco with Nat Jolivette on drums quite a while ago at a bar here in Rochester and the show was really entertaining. Susan Plunkett, the owner of the bar introduced me to Stanley (buckwheat) and Nat after the show... two very nice and very humble men.

i really love danny carey's 14"x18" snare on Aenema and Lateralus. It's made out of old recycled Paiste cymbals. I love it's versatility cuz it sounds awesome when he turns the snares off.

I went and heard some samples on itunes. You are right, pretty awesome snare sound. The music was very cool too.

There's this weird track on Blink 182's self titled album called The Fallen Interlude. That snare, in my opinion, has the nicest sound I've ever heard. Check it out if you don't know the track, it sounds absolutely sweet.

I have to agree. my personal preference is a nice rimshot ring, and damn does he get that down. go butch vig for a great production.

that band as a whole doesn't get enough credit for what they do.
