Just for clarity, The old batter head revealed the "dimple" after the head's tension was released - I try to monitor my heads pretty closely. While yes it was getting old, it had only been on my snare for 7 months... same as the resonant head. Like I said in my original post, the drum was sounding good. I decided to change it because it was getting a little beat up. And since that's the drum we all play the most I figured I would just make a routine change.

Hell, who knows, maybe I just got used to the sound degrading over time and thought it sounded good before. Maybe now it's just right.

I think I will spend some time playing around with it.

Thanks.
