I'm a guitarist, but nothing about drums makes me harder than a super high-tuned pingy snare. Getting that huge, untamed *CRACK* that resonates the whole shell sounds fucking beautiful. I can't stand snares with an o-ring on. However, on faster music I find that the accumulative effect of this ping/ringing can be a bit overbearing, especially in combination with both the close mic and the overheads. How do you like yours, and how do you go about dampening it marginally, and not completely? Moon gel? Strategically placed duct tape?
