I was watching a vid on youtube about a 12x7 snare. It was perfect: it had just enough crack, pop and depth to it. On high tuning, it was probably one of the best snares I've ever heard. I think it was a mapex fastback black panther, if I'm mistaken, I'm sorry, I was like on the floor praying to God to let me have that snare.
I searched for it, couldn't find it, but I came across a 12x7 steel LP snare for $95. I wasn't too sure about it, being it's LP, so I had reason to believe it would come across more as a timbale.
Anyway would a 13x7 snare give me a similar tone to the Mapex? I'm not too familiar with any snares besides my own, so... help a brother out here please!
