Snare batter and resonant head suggestions?
My son has a Tama Rockstar (Taiwan vintage) steel snare laying around that never gets used. I would like to fix it up to give him a good contrasting sound to the Mapex wood snare he usually uses. What would be a good choice for a batter and resonant heads? Please be specific. I think you drummers have even more variations in drum heads than us guitar players have in strings!
