Thanks! As soon as it popped up at that price on CL I knew it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I couldn't miss.

With the old-school snare wire size I really feel like this drum's tone emphasizes the shell itself a bit more and it's naturally pretty fat with the head combo I'm running right now.

Thanks! I've been a Nikon DSLR user since 2009 and I'm a sucker for manual focus lenses as old as my Vistalites are! The main shot in this sequence was with my Nikkor-S 50/1.4, the snare head text shot with the Micro-Nikkor 55/3.5, and the photo with the coated head I want to say was with my 105/1.8.

I brought the Vistalite snare to church today (as I had last week at the end of rehearsal as well) and both me and the other drummer really liked the sound we got with one of those Remo muting rings on there. Seriously considering getting a second one just for the congregation's regular usage!
