Well, I’m not entirely sure that this would qualify as “vintage” but, to me, it kind of is. Its my Pearl 14x4 Marvin ‘Smitty’ Smith copper/gold snare drum. Vintage to me because I bought it about 8 years ago and, still have it. I’ve been through a TON of snare drums over the years, looking for that one that stands out and no matter what I try, I always go back to my Pearl Marvin ‘Smitty’ Smith 14x4 copper snare. Had Pearl Ref Series (both maple/birch and the 14x6.5 brass), Pearl brass and copper free floaters, solid maple snare drums and the Mapex Saturn (maple/walnut), various Pearl Sensitone snare drums and I can’t even remember what else. But, through it all, I have always kept that Pearl Marvin ‘Smitty’ Smith 14x4 copper. Of course, I think, somewhere along the line I must have decided I’m liking metal snare drums more than wood snares. So be it.
