I think the Evans ST Dry was designed with ringy steel snares in mind. It thickens up the tone and cuts most of the ring nicely.

The Evans ST Dry is a good choice. I am switching to that from the Evans HD Dry that really can dry out and tone down the brightness of a snare.

Do consider the HD Dry (with the holes in the perimeter). It has a control ring built-in around the edge. Super dry, and sure to remove any excess ring. Removed too much for my DW maple snare. I still have it on my other snare. It'll tame that beast.

I have a Remo Emeror X on Pork Pie steel snare.

It has a little ring left in it but it sounds good to me that way

I'd have to aggree with the either the Power Center Reverse Dot or the ST. If you want a bright, super resonant snare sound, try using brass coil snares (if you aren't already).

Cheers!
