I've had some pretty decent wood drums over the years (4x14, 5x14 DW 10&6, 5.5x14 Pearl Masters) and always found them to be very one-dimensional.
Decent drums, sure, but not all that different from one another. In ply snares, I like the Ludwig Classic Maple far more than the Collectors or the Masters stuff. And I haven’t even played a Canopus, which people rave about. I admit was mostly playing metal snares like you until Summit Drums came along. My curly maple 6.5x14 hasn’t left my main stand for awhile.
Reality check(not that I’m not a hoarder!) You could live in perfect harmony with just one snare drum
This is true too, if you could only keep one then something like a Supra or a Black Beauty makes a lot of sense. For me right now it would be very hard to choose one to stick with and give up all the rest.
