Hey, I have an old Ludwig LFF-024-DMS free floating marching snare that I've been wanting to convert into an interesting sounding rack tom. After shedding all the snare parts to lose some weight, I threw a reso on it and a coated Remo Weatherking for batter. After a few minutes of tuning, I realized it just wasn't going to give me a good tom sound, it sounds dead and flappy no matter how it's tuned. So, aside from the obvious of it being a marching snare and not a rack tom, what could be causing this issue and what would be some quick solutions? Would it likely just be the free floating mechanism for the head not allowing a solid resonance or maybe the bearing edge? Thanks guys!
