I like the sound of some of the older Ludwig 15s I've heard, but I don't have $1000+ for a vintage snare (and if I did, it probably still wouldn't go to a vintage snare...). Which other metal drums are heavy? I'd love a 15" but for now I just want to know what's out there. I am familiar with cast/milled shells and am talking about more traditional rolled or welded shells, that's what I seem to like the sound of. I know about the Tama Beat King/Swingstar/Imperialstar seamless shells, and I believe some of the Duplexes were heavy, but that's about it.
