Its worth experimenting to get the sound you want...
Question: Do you still get at least a little ring from the HD Dry? And what snare do you have it on (metal or wood)? I have an HD Dry on my DW Collectors maple. Quite dry, but clean - crisp crack.
The Ace is brass, so I still wanted a smidge of tone - ring in there.
