Default Re: Hazy 300 vs Hazy 200...

I never tried a 200 on the snare but on toms it shortens the note to about 2/3rds of it length. It changes the tone in a way that I didn't like, on toms. The thinner the head, the quicker it dies out. This could be a desirable for one person and not desirable for another, depends on preferences. I like my notes to ring out as long as they can. You might not. The 300 is plenty sensitive if you ask me, I mean it's less than1/3 the thickness of an Ambassador batter head. You could try the 200, or you could keep your existing head and try a 30 or 40 strand set of wires for a more snare-y sound without losing note length. With a 200 on there your note could be shorter, and you snares might be more pronounced. That's what I would be expecting to hear, but you never know until you try. For orchestral where sensitivity at low volumes is needed, this may be the ticket. For a bar band, it might take away some of the body of the drum.
The best way to do art, is to dispense with good and bad...and just get on with it.
