i've given up my quest for a crack drum. instead, im looking for a very deep sounding snare. kinda like the snare drum used in offspring "the kids arent alright." kinda like the ones used in all 80s rock!

lemme know if you know how to obtain this sound.

Get a nice, thin shelled 6 1/2x14" snare and tune medium-low. You might need a little tuning experience to do so because low tunings aren't as easy as just cranking the snare down. You gotta fiddle with the snare wire tension too. Some muffling is usually needed as well to control things like snare buzz.

But once you can get it to sound right, it's AWESOME.

im thinking that the depth of about six inches would be the necassary for this sound right?

at least 6 inches, if its around 5, it wont sound as deep, if it does, it will sound muddy . ..
