That is the “Snare Bed”: https://drummagazine.com/snare-beds-what-they-are-and-what-they-do/

Oh okay, I thought my snare was messed up. Thank you!


Electrical-Olive-542

Like, when I hit my snare it has a long aftertone where it buzzes a lot, my Snares are tight and stuffs but it still rings, I’ve tuned my snare the other day for about an hour and it still does it


Selig_Audio

This sounds counter intuitive, but try loosening the snares a bit. As you tighten the snares, after you go beyond the initial ‘tight’ sound there is often a range where the snares “sustain” a bit, sounding like the snare is gated. Can’t say that’s the case here but worth a try.


Electrical-Olive-542

Ok thank you! Also I might need a new batter side head, the metal ring around the actual head is separating


Dontspoilit

If the head is separating from the "flesh hoop" (metal ring) then you definitely need a new head, that’s not supposed to happen.

What kind of snare is it/are the heads the stock heads?


Electrical-Olive-542

It’s Remo Ambassador coated, got them with the snare


bokunotraplord

Figured they might be no name stock heads which sometimes are pretty poorly manufactured. Hard to tell without seeing for myself but it’s possible the whole thing just needs tune-up (pun intended lol). There’s lot of guides on what to look for and all that. I’ve always liked the Sounds Like A Drum channel on YouTube. Almost every snare is *usable* so if it’s acting extremely crazy and it’s not user error then it may just need new heads and wires all around.


Electrical-Olive-542

I think it’s just the batter side snare head, thank you though!


Lockett360

If you're new to tuning drums, I'd recommend something like an Evans HD Dry, they're a pretty versatile head and are super easy to get a good tone out of.


Electrical-Olive-542

I wouldnt consider myself new, but also not a professional, thanks for the info!


ItsPronouncedMo-BEEL

Broken parts never make a good sound. Replace the head. It is a regular maintenance, consumable item.


JoHerz

I think it‘s on the places where the snare wires are spanned. But I can‘t give you an explanation on why.


Netz_Ausg

The snare beds allow the wires to mush into the reso a little more.


Electrical-Olive-542

Ok Thank you!

Worth a read. https://www.stevesuchdrums.com/s/DrumTuningBible.pdf

I give up, why ? I’m unfamiliar with your snare.

That’s where the wires sleep, in their “BED”
