    When did people stop playing butt end on snare ?

    Butt end on the floor tom for crescendos now and then. Using it for extra power on the snare drum makes my hands feel off balance, so i dont bother, i get plenty of volume playing trad grip out of my snare

    Rings near the edge..dry in center

    So what do the stick marks on your snare drum tell you?...Are you edgy or centered, or are you a jazzer and show no marks because the brushes wore them off?
