I use a Evans ST dry but I play metal and rock, you'd be looking for something less agressive.

I'd try a Power center reverse dot.

The head that was on the drum when you got it is probably fine. Most likely a Remo Coated Ambassador.

If you know how to play - you should be able to use any snare with any heads for any music. What you describe having is pretty standard and will work. It's up to you to make it sound right.

Ignore the "with that snare" part of the sentence- the real question is whether YOU can play blues. The drum isn't playing for you.

That said, I imagine that your drum should be able to make a bluesy snare sound quite well if you play it well :)
