Re: I think it's time we address why stock heads are so bad
On Sunday, my roommate bought his son an 20 ply PDP snare for his birthday. He asked me to tune it up. It sounded like a box. I had a new Emperor X laying around. So,I switched out the Chinese batter head. I thought that an Emperor X was a bad idea on a 20 ply drum, but took the chance. The drum came to life. Sounds great! I still wish it had a thinner head but the difference is night and day. I wish I had a better reso for him.
I'm actually thinking about getting one of those snares now. $199.00
