Wallet On The Snare Drum
Most experienced drummers probably know this trick, but if you’re a beginner then it may be a helpful tip for you. If you’re ever struggling to get your snare drum to sound good, and you’ve tried everything else, place your wallet on top of the snare. More often than not, this will solve your problem.
Now, I can’t guarantee this, but I know it’s worked for me. However, it may depend on your wallet size and weight, as well other indeterminate factors. But if you have a pretty average size wallet (such as our Buck wallet), with an average amount of contents (not like the George Costanza wallet), it should do the trick.
