Default The forgotten hero.

Yes, I know this should really be in the heads section, but hey, it's a more general point really.

If you're anything like me (poor you!), you pay little attention to your snare reso head. Ok, you tune it once in a while, but change it frequently? Nah, most of us leave them on way too long.

Anyhow, just my little bit of total joy news, I bought my used 13" maple stave with a Remo Amassador snareside head on it. I'm not a Remo fan, but I thought I'd leave it on as it sounded ok, so I just changed the batter as soon as I got it home. Played with this drum on & off for a while, & it sounds good. Well, I put an Evans 300Hazy on last night & took the drum to band practice. Double OMG!! The drum just came to life. Super stunning open, uber woody, poptastic. All of this because of changing the snareside head! Certainly a forgotten hero by any measure.

Yes, get down there now! I've worked out why I'm so surprised by the huge change in sound, I've always changed both the reso & batter heads at the same time, I've never just changed the snare reso head in isolation. I guess I'm just shocked at what a big difference it makes. Ok, I changed the make of head too, so that's going to amplify any difference. Nevertheless, I'm still knocked out by the stunning release of potential in the drum.
