Well...I've always liked deeper snares and was givin permission by the old lady to get a new snare(sad huh?)... so i've had my eye on the Vinnie Paul Sig Snare.. went to guitar center and they had it on display..and tuned fairly well(which is rare)... i was sold..it sounds incredible and looks mean as shit.... used it this weekend at our gig and got a million compliments on it..both look and sound...

My vinnie paul is my favorite piece on my set. It has a huge tuning range so yo can find the sound your really like out of it. the quality is flawless and everywhere i go people complement on the finish.

I dig the Vinnie Paul Sig Snare. I'm sure it's a powerhouse. I played on one at Guitar Center, but sadly, and obviously, it wasnt tuned, so it didn't sound that great. Snare head was loose and it had too much ring. But I'm sure with some tuning, it sounds amazing.
I like Vinnie's snare sound on the Pantera records, and live with Pantera. I wasn't too impressed with the drum sound on the Damageplan cd, but it was tolerable.
Vinnie's drum sound on the HellYeah album is horrendous. I'm sorry, but it just doesnt sound like Vinnie Paul. They sound flat, and the snare doesnt have enough bite. His kicks dont even have punch or attack anymore, they sound flat.
His Pantera sound was his trademark. Whenever you heard that powerhouse snare drum with that nice crack, and the clicky, punchy kicks, you knew it was nobody else but Vinnie. He should have stuck with it.
But, maybe that has to do with the producer. Pantera produced and recorded the cds themselves in their home studio, after Far Beyond Driven. I noticed a change in the drum sound after that album. I think they stopped working with Terry Date after Far Beyond Driven, because he produced Vulgar Display also, and the drum sound on those 2 albums were similar. So maybe he had alot to do with Vinnie's drum sound on those two albums, and Vinnie couldn't emulate that sound on his own after that.
Trendkill's drum sound still sounds good, Dime's guitar tone was just brutal on that album! Reinventing's production was alright, could have been better, sounded kind of flat.

apparently it comes with a health and safety warning due to the rock n roll spikes, i bet you hav to really lay into it to " speak " n i reckon the snare off option is killer

I like the way it looks. Very cool. Not really into deep snares though.
