Also going from muffling snares (tape to dots to pinstripes to dry heads) to enjoying the ring of brass-shelled snare drums.

One thing about my drum preferences has never changed. I have always disliked the ringing sound from a metal snare drum or a wood shelled drum. I have always used a bit of dampening--just enough to make that annoying sound go away. Internal tone controls serve that purpose very well by just barely touching the underside of a drum head--not choking the drum.

I used to hate any kind of ring. But got hooked on brass snares and when they are tuned nice, can't bear to muffle. Of course depends on what style of music. Ring does not match everything. Especially on playing on deep snares. I like the tone control on Slingerlands, can barely touch it to just cut the ring and not much else-if needed.

We are in total agreement about the Slingerland internal
tone controls.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

"oh and my brush playing thatís evolved" As the prophet Bob Marley wrote: "Stir it up". After all of my years of drumming, I'm still a weak brush player.
