Re: Snare batter and resonant head suggestions?
Well, I took my son to Guitar Center with the intention of buying heads suggested here, and they had a really nice sounding Yamaha steel (14 x 6.5) snare for peanuts. Ended up buying that instead of new heads. It really cuts and provides a nice contrast to his Black Panther. It also offered the opportunity to discuss the merits of putting some of the money he is making gigging back into his equipment.
