Re: Fiberskyn/Skyntone on a brass snare?
The skyntones have some overtones that are not easy to control. I have one on a maple snare and It took me a long time to tune it in. However once I figured it out It is the best sounding snare I have ever played. I'm not sure about the newer Fiberskyn heads because it has been a long time since I have used them. But I used to have the problem with them getting tore up pretty bad on the snare. I'm not a heavy hitter either. Its almost like they are De-laminating. However I loved them on the toms.
