My snare is the one.... in any song :?

No, I really don't know what I like the best. After all, it's pretty well known that the snare drums were sounding great on deep purples machine head album, but would it be grate to but that sound into the Metallica album st anger? I don't know, maybe...

Is it possible that the best sound is the sound that sounds good in more music :?:

here's a few,

Jay Dee Daugherty's Brady snare on Australian band The Church's album 'Priest=Aura'

The Police's Stewart Copeland on any album-especially as already mentioned 'Zenyatta Mondatta'

The fat spft 80's snare sound of the Cure's 'Faith' and 'Seventeen Seconds'

David King's wild, open ringing jazz sound on 'The Bad Plus' albums 'Give' and 'Suspicious activity?'

Any track from Tomas Haake of the hardcore metal band 'Meshuggah'...this guy is an outrageously amazing drummer!

IMO, Shannon Larkin has an amazing snare in Godsmacks Re-Align.
And I think it's Steve Gadd's snare in Teahouse On The Tracks by Donald Fegan is kickass.
And of course, ?uestloves snare(s) are just awesome.
Vic Firth.

I like Mike Portnoy's snare on As I Am. (I'm not a Dream Theater buff so I don't know what album it's off)

Yuri Ruley from MXPX has some nice snares.

And any that Travis Barker uses.
Mapex, Janus, Sabian, Vic Firth, Tama, Remo and a proud air drummer!

Tool - The Pot
Steely Dan - F.m./Babylon Sisters
Led Zep - Fool In The Rain (love the shuffle)
Jeff Buckley - Lover, you should have come over (matt Johnson on drums)
James Brown - papa dont take no mess
Incubus - Deep Inside
Dave matthews band - all track on Under the table and dreaming
Charlie Hunter - One foundation (shawn pelton on drums)

a blend of poppy snares, fatback, and everything in between.

Thomas Noonan's snare on 36 Crazyfist's 2nd album "Snow Capped Romance" - DEAR GOD! The snare sounds so amazing :D - a really tight krack, but but with awesome body to it. You'll have to hear it yourself - I hugely recommend it - as im not sure ive given it justice...

Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree) - Deadwing (album)

Notable indeed, but I wouldn't say there is any best as everyone has a different taste.
