Can you use a snare rim as a batter rim? Any difference between the two rims? The reason I an asking is I have found a snare rim that I want to make my own--thin---practice head to practice brush work.
What Larry said - no problem doing that, especially for the purpose you've stated. Of course, doing any rimshots with a stick in the area of the cutouts could bend the hoop, but that's not what you intend to do. Proceed, sir.
