Default Re: Dry heads for ludwig blackrolite acrolite snare?

i have an Acrolite. It has a little ring too it. I like it with the PCRD head and a Hazy 300. If I wan't to cut the ring down, I'll use a sound control ring for a drier, fatter sound. On my other aluminum Snare drum, an old Gretsch, I have way too much ring, so on that one I'll use a Genera HD Dry with a Diplomat reso. Seems to do the trick with no extra muffling. I used to use an Ambassador and bury it with duct tape.
Drumming for fun.

I generally dislike overtones in my snares and prefer a drier sound. Of the 14 snares I own, my '65 Acro is, by far, the driest sounding snare I own.

I've never had an issues controlling overtones on that snare. Usually I run with a coated Ambassador on it, or the heavier single ply Ludwig heads. No issues with overtones on that snare. At all.
