Re: Getting some bad vibrations.

I agree , change the reso and while you have it off try hitting the drum without it and see what it sounds like, but most likely a better reso should do it.

Re: How do you feel the day after a gig?

Like a half deflated balloon under a vinyl chair draped with tinsel and streamers in the corner of a beer soaked room.

Re: Do we really need expensive drums?

If you don't want your drum throne to collapse on you mid set then buy a good one. There is a lesson in that for all of us.

Re: Do you all tune your snare reso heads tighter than the batter?

No. Why would you want that brittle choked out sound? I would think the snare wire setting would be more crucial, over tightening both of them is just silly . No room to move.
