Kenny Buttrey's Session Drum Set

I love the way Kevin Buttrey's drums sound on Neil Young records, and I was wondering what type of kit he used? It's in the Musicians Hall of Fame here in in Nashville, and I attached a photograph of it.

I'm really the most interested in the type of snare he used.

Looks like old Sonor teardrops and a Ludwig Supraphonic.

Awesome, a keep a look out for a decent Supraphonic at a good price. That looks like a 5x14, would I be correct?

Correct... one of (if not THE) most recorded drums ever.. and thankfully, a dime a dozen. You can pick one up cheap if you don't mind one that sounds great but isn't pretty.
