Same dimensions - would cost about the same

I just want a new snare to replace the stock model that came with my old Tama Stagestar kit, which I use for small gigs.

I play classic pop, lighter rock, and funk.

Looking for versatility at a lower cost. I keep an eye on the used section here, too.

Thanks for reading.

Is that the ten lug Stage Custom steel?
There was a post here (I think) that said he went to GC to buy a Rogers Dyna Sonic, but came home with the Stage Custom steel.
That got my attention, but I have too many snares. Everything I need + some!

For a steel snare in that low price range I would probably recommend a Pearl Sensitone or a Ludwig Supralite.
That being said, for a little more (or maybe not if you find one on your local classifieds) you could get yourself a USA made Ludwig Acrolite which would do just about anything. That's what I tell all my students to get.
