It's long overdue for my snare to be cleaned up and reheaded. I took it apart today and cleaned it real well (Kolstein's Instrument cleaner) and man was it dirty. There were also two "open seams" where it looks like the drum took a hit (very possible in my earlier years) or was tuned too tight for too long.
I put a new strainer on but now I have to deal with the cracks before I put on the new heads and snares. My tech will probably use a dab of super glue and a clamp. I was wondering if anyone else had this "delamination" problem and if so, what did you do to fix it?

*I got an EC2 reverse dot batter and Hazy 300 with some Puresound snares. Gotta see what all the buzz is about, pun intended. Then its a black hydraulic (batter) and J1 etched (reso) for my 10" tom.

Nevermind, all fixed up with glue.
Drum sounds awesome with no muffling. Snares are cool too.
It's the first time I actually chose heads for a certain sound and got it.

and yes I did just reply to my own post.....what a loser I am.

they try to make me go to rehab......

I clean my drums and redo the heads before every gig.
When I was younger, and crazier.. I used to run into the same problem.
