Re: i am a serial snare head killer
If you are getting blisters. Technique problem. If you are denting heads frequently. Technique problem or bad head selection. My first thought when I saw your photos was that the snare is way too low. Especially if you are a hard hitter, and I will guess bordering on basher. Try a heavier head, G14 Evans is a good place to start, and raise the snare. Also the stick sounds like a parade stick. All of this combined is a problem. Find a teacher and iron this stuff out before you spend another ton of cash on heads.
