    Default Curious...

    I've been seeing a lot of friend's photos with a multitude of snare drums. Is this the new trend? I only own 2, lol.

    How many snare drums do you own?

    I own 4 but only wear one. I think some drummers *coughSpazcough* collect snare drums like some women collect shoes...

    I think I have 7 or 8, but I only really use 3;
    1) 13x7 Pork Pie COS on my practice kit
    1) 13x6 Supralite for small venue gigs
    1) 14x8 Supralite for large venue/outdoor gigs.
    The rest just collect dust...

    That said, I’m always on the lookout for a unique or killer deal on snares. Snares are cheap compared to kits, easy to collect and fun to mix-n-match. There’s a huge range of styles, sizes and designs, so why not have fun with them? Also, the snare is the most recognizable to the audience.

    Great...I think I just talked myself into buying another snare...

    It's clearly just an addiction. No real need for it. I am down to 7. I only use 2 of them. Idiotic I know.

    I acquired a modest collection of 8 over the span of about 30 years. 4 of them are in gig rotation with 2 of them seeing the most use.

    My problem is I can't seem to convince myself to sell the others ...

    If I was gonna specifically pick a snare collection, those are the ones I’d choose. Except for maybe the Mapex....not that it’s bad, it’s just not one I’d pick.

    I've had the Black Panther up for sale for over a year. The other 1's I rotate between my Ludwigs and the Pearls.

    The Black Beauty SS is with my Ludwigs and the Acrolite is with Pearls. Right now, subject to change.

    I’m sitting on 11 right now. I do swap them out pretty frequently. I like to play with the tunings and trying different head and wire combinations.

    I’ve thought about getting another. For some reason I have it in my head that having a prime number of snare drums is bad luck. Or maybe it’s good luck and I just want another. Then I would have to go to 13.

    I'm with Tom on this one. I love them all and you out there with your massive collections, but I don't have anything I don't use. I have four snares. Two DW Collectors that I use for my primary (14x6 maple and 14x8 brass) and two Ludwig (13x3 bronze and 14x5 acrolite) that I use for my side snare. I love a museum as much as the next guy. I just don't want to own one. #notacurator
