Default Re: Supra snare troubles and questions

I believe the kids call this necro-posting, but I was on the forum looking for something and realized I never posted the revelation I had regarding this snare issue to wrap it up.

So....I was hitting the snare, and as it rattled on, I happened to touch the head on the rack tom and the rattling stopped. It is basically a kind of reverse sympathetic buzz going on, where I hit the snare and that makes the tom vibrate, which causes the snare buzz - weird.

I had a suspicion it would be tuning related, but was hoping it wasn't, cuz the drum tone that I have for everything is good. It is somewhat room-dependent and pretty much a non-issue at a gig, so I'll deal with it.
