    hey drummer girl,
    i had exactly the same problem with my blue elx snare-maybe they're cursed!
    No, its easy 2 fix. first, change the snare head to something like a powerstroke. tighten it up REALLY tight, and the bottom head tight, but not as tight. Retighten the snares, but not too much.
    JOB DONE-WORKED FOR ME. good luck. .......DAN

    by the way, the heads on your new kit have to bed in. during the bed in period, they will come loose. this is why your snare became more ringy. after you re-tighten them a few times, they will stop coming loose cus they will have bedded in.
    Hope this helps, DAN

    but its ringing more then wen i 1st got it and i dun like that
    I got my kit from drummers' paradise and the guys there stick all the heads on ya drums and stuff and tune them for ya
    and they sounded beutiful wen i 1st got them home!
    What I do , and Iím not saying this suits everybody. But I donít bother with music shops ,, Iím in Bonnie Scotland btw
    , I only use certain shops for my heads , sticks n whatever else I need.
    I like to get to know my kit so to speak , so I take apart bits of her and give her a good polish , that way I know her and I know the bits Iím messing with , like memory locks wingnuts n all the other bits n bobs. Tuning pegs ,, when I put new heads on I press down centre of head using butt of wrist with a folded cloth then tighten each tension rod opposite to each other , say 2 oíclock then 7oí clock then 11oíclock to 5 oíclock ,, hope this makes sense to you,,. As Iím tightening tension rods itís only until they are just tight (not over tight) after that I get rid of cloth that I used butt of wrist to hold down on ,, then fine tune from there. Sitting a folded scarf on floor Tom will dampen sound ,, and a sock draped over other toms will also dampen sound. Like a cheap moon gel alternative. Works for me

    Wow, that was a roller coaster.

    Thanks for the throwback to the world of early-2000's forums, Briankrupa67.
