How get a good dry Crack out of your snare??

ive always wanted that awesome sounding good FAT Crack sound of my snare. kinda like Lester Estelle jr. of pillar's sound. i know he uses Kansas city drum company snares but how do i get my average Gretsch snare to sound like that?!?!?!?

Crank the hell out of it on both sides and snare wire tension pretty high, be careful not to choke it though.

You can't really. Unless you're using his drums in his studio. See what I mean?

Also, ... you said "dry" crack in your title, then in the text you say FAT crack...to me, those are different.

What kind of Gretsch snare do you have?
