Most (many) snare issues can be dealt with via the reso.
Playing around with my reso snare head - truth-be-told - kind of scares me. As far as I can tell, this head sounds to be in the right place on the drum. And the snare wires are right where I like them. Of course, the new batter head could have changed that relationship, huh?
Why couldn't this be my 8" tom. When that gets messed up I'm not that worried about it.
