    Nope, but looking forward to seeing it when I can.
    How was it, without giving too much away?

    It was good. Knowing the history like I do, I wish for a couple of changes. One thing I will say is it doesn’t feel seamless from the last episode. There are flashbacks which I cannot stand. Obviously, it’s done so it can be a stand alone movie, but this is made for the fans of the show who need a resolution, not for new people.

    My wife and I watched it last nite. She summed it up well I thought , Too much time has gone by (13 years ) that maybe people that loved this series have forgotten the characters individual story lines. IMO it was too much to fit into 1&1/2 hrs.

I sort of always just leave it like it is after putting on new heads, and then after time I notice the drum starts sounding better. Must be the heads stretching and getting to a blissful state of less tension.
    Is it different because most people aren't aiming to get more sustain out of their snare, unlike toms. They're totally different drums. I match my batters and resos on toms to maximize resonance.

    When I say crank the snare side, I mean crank it up. I think Benny Greb uses this method. You crank up the snare head super tight to where your finger can barely depress into the head, this is essentially dialing in your resonance, which shouldn't be much. Adjust your wires for a tighter response or loosen to get more sensitivity. Your top head is in charge of tone, dial that in depending on what the room calls for. If you want more overtones, detune the 2 lugs closest to you by a quarter or half turn to open up the drum a little more.

    I use this method on every snare I have ever owned and it works incredibly in any range. To be honest I don't bother with matching pitches on lugs or anything like that, I just go with whatever feels right under the stick and to my ear. I always get compliments on my snare sounds. I have a bell brass snare tuned to a healthy medium tone, a 14x8 mahogany tuned low, and I had a Joey Jordison sig snare tuned almost as high as I could take it and the method always works. I highly recommend trying it out. I plat hardcore and metal type music and my snare always cut. I can't stand watching a band and not being able to hear the snare. I play basements and small clubs unmiked sometimes and the snare always comes through. It's the perfect solution.

    I’ll give it a shot. I hope the shell doesn’t come apart.
