I like it the different slant!
I am NOT a gear head, but I have many snares. So I don't write a ridiculously long post, I'll do this... Here is a current picture of my SD shelf (minus two.) Below I'll list all the snares, and you can ask me why I like any of them.
I can tell you that I really don't get a new snare unless it fills a need (sound) that I don't already have. And I tend to take this viewpoint of snares.
I like to find where a snare "likes to live" (tuning, heads, wires, rims, etc...) and keep it there (basically.) When I want another snare sound, I pick another drum, instead of going down a possible wormhole of trying to get a snare sound "differently." That can often waste my time (and others) which is bad business (IMHO.) I keep the tweaking for the year or so after I get the drum. THAT is the time that I get to know the drum, and try to find where it sounds best (regarding the above components) then I tend to keep it there until the heads needs changing. I learned this approach from watching Steve Jordan work, and time spent with (and learning from) drum tech Artie Smith. It works for them, and it works for me.
I keep a bunch of rims (cob, maple, DC, single and double flange, and triple flange of a few different thicknesses,) heads, and different type of snare wires to experiment with.
The snares that aren't in the picture are an Ocheltree 5.5 Phantom, and a cheap Tama Steel snare 5x10 (I think.) They were on a gig (sorry!)
The pictured snares are all 14's unless noted.
