Metal drum sounds:

Copper - Warm, articulate, and very dry. Can be tuned nice and mellow or tuned up for a nice dry crack.

Bronze - Very warm almost wood like. Has the crack of a metal shell but the warmth and articulation of a maple shell.

Aluminum - Again dry but not as much as the already mentioned alloys. Acrolites are of the aluminum variety. Great pop, great body, extremely sensitive and very versatile. Other worthy mentions Pearl Ultracast.

Brass - The best of the best when it comes to alloy shells. It's very resonant, has volume like no other, is extremely sensitive, it's resonance is nothing but pure. It can be warm or bright depending on tuning and head selection.

Steel- Some associate steel with being cheap, beginner drums, but that's far from the truth. A good quality steel snare will yield wonderful results. It's very resonant, high pitched overtones, it cuts through the mix like brass, and is also sensitive. Steel snares that tend to come with beginner kits are only bad because the quality of parts and construction is cheaply done.

Now you also have a variable. Whether the alloy shell is hand hammered or not. A straight shell in comparison to a hammered shell is a big difference. Hammering will dry out the drum and warm it up a bit, more so than it already is like a copper or bronze drum. Mapex does this with their bronze drums, as well as Ludwig and a few others.
