I put mine on my snare as well. That way I'm still sitting behind the kit while using it and it seems much more realistic for me.My practice pad was too small to be effectively held by the snare stand so I put it on top of the snare and always keep it there. (I'm just practicing, not gigging.) I've dampened the snare (from the lower side, with duct tape) to produce acceptable level when using the pad, and the ringing is enough to make the pad sound much more realistic and practice more fun. I have a very shallow snare - it's rather a modified tom - and preferring a somewhat higher 'snare' position, I have to adjust the snare stand to about its maximum height.
