I've had a Phantom XII for 30 years. It's got a screaming orange interior on the 'Coffin' case. Used it on a zillion records.
Wow. Did it play in tune? I eventually got rid of mine, since either the first three frets, or the rest of the guitar could be used at any given time. Currently a Fender Strat XII and a Ric with the 12 saddle bridge handle 12 string chores.

As for snares, just to stay on topic, I have two roughly 7.5" x 15" jobbys. Both have been custom worked at some point. One was apparently Slingerland to begin with, the other probably Pearl. The Slingerland is Rosewood, the Pearl is Maple. They sound too much alike, but they both sound like God's drum. I really hate most of the piccolos and such. Then again my kit makes drummers retch, until they sit down at it.
