Default split snare help!

sorry...didnt realize I was posting in this forum....does anyone know how to move this thread?

so I split my snare in half on my table saw...

I was pretty board when I did this and didn't know how pingy it was going to make the snare sound

is there anyway to tighten up the sound? with out useing a snare ring? I used a ring and duct tape on the head but that doesn't do it....any ideas on how to get a tight sound out of this wonderful snare I destroyed?

the snare was a 6x14 or 6.5x14....whatever the standard is...its at the same depth minus almost a quarter inch out of the middle.

unfortunatly the snare was my favorite snare....well, that's gone now and I'm warming up to the new sound
I like a tight ringing sound with minimal ping sound
I got everything sounding almost just like before....just a tad too much ping....but its a tight loud sound now....i just need something to get rid of the excesive ping and this will be my new favorite snare. any ideas??? rings don't give me the sound I'm looking for and duct tape doesn't either..... anyone? otherwise this was a nice split....no chips in the orginal paint job and no damage to the rings

You mean to say that instead of buying a new or used shallow snare, You simply cut a snare drum in half! I've been playing since forever and this is the first that I've heard of such a thing!
Please post pics and explain further.

We need to see pics! Maybe not for helping purposes, but just out of sheer curiousity and utter amazement...

Also, what kind of snare was it?

If it was your favorite snare WHY would you do that????

What head combo's have you tried?

As far as I understand, you've done some pretty extreme porting, right? Same depth snare, just with a big "hole" along the equator.

Have you tried a thicker, drier head? Or maybe changing the reso tuning?
