Man, more hit records were made on the drums above than any others--perhaps all the others combined.

No shiny cymbals, either!

There's no way on cleaning coated head without preventing possible damage (like the coating's going to chip etc...). Leave it as it is, it only should that your snare head had living experiences.

Use simple green and a cotton towel if it bothers you that much.

easiest way if you want it white, put a new one on ;-) The black marks normally come from dirt on your sticks, which allot of times is picked up off your cymbals.
