Re: Anyone using GAFFERS tape for dampening heads?

I too don't use muffling on anything but the kick anymore.

Evans st dry - it's the perfect snare head IMO just the right amount of ring.

Re: Rawness

yes.

rawness is where it's at.

Re: So,I ported my "26...

using a 2" port hole was the answer for me.

You get some air escape that reduces the bounce - but you don't lose very much low end like you do with a 4-6" hole.
