Default Re: Snare Heads

I replace my snare head every month or two, usually. I usually play anywhere between 3-10 hours a week, depending on my schedule. I keep my snare tuned so high that I HAVE to change heads often, though. The mylar stretches under the tension to the point that the top of my hoop is nearly level with the bearing edge of the drum. I don't know how safe that is for the shell or the hardware, but I've had no warpage or damage to it for the few years that I've owned it.
