Default Question about snare drum tuning...

Hi !

Ok, when the "dead spot" in the center of the snare
become larger, (when tuning tighter), it's because the
snare is at it's limit before choking ???

Too bad I like that sound but I hate the large (3") dead
spot...


Thanks for your help.

Philippe

I think he might be talking about the dry spot in the dead center of the head.

I haven't noticed the "dead spot" being any bigger when I crank a snare up. I usually play around with where I hit the snare, and I'm constantly going back and forth between dry and wet sounds and everything in between. I've noticed that different snares tend to have different-sized "dead spots", if that means anything...
