Yup. My Sound King even has a couple of indentations at the strainer and still sounds great. Needs a bit of rehab now, though. The strainer is prone to failure on them and the hole orientation makes it difficult to find a replacement. There may be some newer strainer that fits. I haven't looked in awhile.Lotta good drums mentioned here (I'll second Supralites.)
In this bracket, I'll nominate Slingerland's 60s/70s COB Sound King snares. Another excellent yet inelegant plain Jane drum, but this one sounds and feels distinctively different.
It's a bit like a BB but more focused and controlled sounding, and maybe a little fatter.
