Re: i am a serial snare head killer
I agree with Naigewron; I tend to get dents more when I'm hitting a drum with the stick not as flat as possible. Happens the most on snares when I have the drum too low, on toms when I don't have the angle quite right.
Also, how do you tune you snare? If you're tuning the batter really low, that can contribute as well.
See if you can find a thick maple stick like the SD2 with a different tip. I think SD1 has a larger ball which might help; it's longer though.
G14 is a good suggestion as well. Do you really dent an Empreor as much as an Ambassador?
