what i used this setup for:

i played on the exact snare drum setup outlined in the audition-ready snare setup when i won my met orchestra audition in 2011. i also used it it when i recorded the CD/DVD album, delécluse: douze études for snare drum, which was the fiftieth anniversary of the pieces and their first-ever recording.
