    I have the same snare. and let me say it's a real beauty.

    I currently have a coated G2 on top of it. Perfect head imo. I get the right mixture of ring and dryness and that fat gunshot deep crack.

    I have my batter head tuned Tight. CRANKED! below choking though. Then I have my reso a little bit lower than the batter tuning. It gives me a real warm fat crack. Kinda reminds me of Zoro's snare on MDF 2005. but mine has more of that gunshot crack.

    ahhh! i love it

    I always tune the snare side higher than the batter. I have the same snare with the stock heads and I have the snare side on the tight side and my batter around medium tight. I have a piece of moongel on the top as well to take out some of the ring, but this combo gives me a nice full sound.
