    Pearl Eliminator RedLine double with blue cams. Played IC's for 25 years and the Eliminator has it beat by far.

    Solid Shell Snare w/ Lacquer Finish - OK in the long run?

    For what it's worth, I have a 25 year old solid shell Noble & Cooley black gloss piccolo with no cracking or stress problems. With the exception of the brass it's as good as new.

    DW collectors

    I don't play my DW's anymore but I do have an 11x14 hanging tom. I find DW's to be a little lower in tone than other drums and the 14 when tuned a certain way can sound like a 16 no problem.

    Good brass snares (besides the Black Beauty)

    This. I had an older model like this one, great back beats and tone.

    Ludwig Memory Collars a tight fit ?

    Seems to be a common problem. The screwdriver method is what works. On my FT legs a couple of them have inconsistant diameters and the memory locks slide smooth to a certain point then get bogged down.
