Parallel vs "Standard"?


New member
Anyone care to comment on the difference in playing a parallel strainer vs a standard one? I'm considering the purchase of an older 5x14 COB snare that I can find in both configurations - one considerably cheaper than the other and I'm wondering if the difference in drumset application playing mostly Rock/Classic Rock/some Blues is worth the difference in price?
any opinons to help inform/steer me would be greatly appreciated :)
