Presumably Briskers generally daven nusach Ashkenaz. Is there a particular siddur associated with Brisk, perhaps with haskomos from Brisker roshei yeshivos?

Maybe nusach HaGra –  sam Sep 25 '13 at 12:58
There are siddurim with haskamot? I'm not sure that I've ever seen such a thing. –  Shimon bM Sep 26 '13 at 7:06
I think in general, the whole idea of special siddurim, with odd features that distinguish them from others, the use of which identifies you as part of a certain group--is a chasidic thing. People in 'the yeshiva world' are usually not into that sort of thing. –  paquda Oct 2 '13 at 16:49
@paquda that sounds right, but what about the variations in Ashkenaz siddurim, then? Just not a big deal? –  yoel Oct 2 '13 at 17:47
@ShimonbM definitely certain siddurim come with haskamos. Tefila Yeshara comes immediately to mind, although of course those are more on the Keser Nehora commentary... Chemdas Yisroel has them too. As Ashkenaz siddurim go, Siach Tefila has one from R' Chaim Kanievsky shlita. –  yoel Oct 2 '13 at 17:49
