Default Dampening ring rattles when head is struck

Hey guys and girls
I recently received a Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz for my 18th birthday. It's a great little kit for what it's purpose is ( to do the pub crawl in filthy mangy Melbourne pubs, bars and clubs with my band Amber Lamps, check out my signature).

I've started re skinning it and have changed all the stock resos out to Remo Ambassadors. I have a question about the bass head though. For those of you who own a Cat. Jazz, have/did you ever had the dampening ring on the stock bass drum batter head rattle when you play it? Mine does and it can be quite annoying. I don't know if this is picked up by mics but it sure pisses me off from behind the kit.

I am wanting to change the stock head to a powerstroke 3 but don't want to spend $65-$70 on another head that has a dampening if the ring rattles. Has anyone experience any rattle from powersrtoke 3 rings?
Help is much appreciated
Thanks
Jackson

Close. I own the Cat maples.

I didn't notice any problems with the stock head, but then again it didn't stay on the kit long at all. I've been using PS3's for years now with no rattles, breaks or any other problems either.
