    IMO.. DW Craviotto 14x5.5 is one of the best all round snares ever. If you ever only can have one snare in your possession, this is it.

    If anyone could have have an objective decision, it would be Micheal, who is not brand prejudiced and owns more snares than most rock stars.

    LOL..I take this as a compliment! :D Thanks..

    I truly enjoy collecting snares..playing with them..mix and matching the hoops, experimenting with different snappys, etc.. Drums are just so addicting..

    You enjoy collecting? Really? I would have never guessed.

    And yes it was meant as a compliment, most recommend snares based on what they own, and that is a small selection for most people, so usually is a limited biased opinion. However, from what I can tell, you own a little bit of everything and I would think you could not possibly be brand prejudiced.

    Just remember guys, ones mans sweet sound is another mans noise. The only snare I have bought off of a recommendation from a drum site is a BB. That is really the only snare you need in your arsenal.

    Based on the snares that you have listed in your signature, a 5.5 inch solid shell snare might be a good option as it looks like you already have two 6 inch plywood snares. Do you plan on using this snare for gigging?

    I have heard and read that the Craviotto is a nice drum but I do not own one. I do own a 5.5 inch Radio King and if you happen to like the vintage sound, this might be an option.

    What is your budget? There are a massive number of snares out there to choose from.
    My personal choice would be a custom, one-of-a-kind by ADD. Alan is a master craftsman and a drummer as well. And, his drums are really reasonably priced for hand made instruments. Some day I will own one.
    Here's a link to his site:

    I think I love to play the drums simply because you get to hit 'em!!!

    Thanks Ricardo ... but not quite as nice as that vintage Gretsch snare of yours that I've been drooling over for the last several weeks ...

    Yes. I won the pair in a contest, if you can believe it. The Elmwood was the same snare Gregg Bissonette used to play when he was with Mapex.

    I love my Pork Pie snare. It's a 13" x 5" in turquoise sparkle. I don't have a close-up, but it matches my kit.
