First of - admittedly, my drums are really D grade material, and they're quite a few years old... but I recently started getting back into 'em. Now as I'm playing them (this is probably an unfixable problem - but I know nothing about the technical side of drums regardless of how long I've been playin' em) the snare is rattling as I'm hitting the other drums and it's the most annoying thing ever... is there ANYTHING I can do to stop this from happening?! ('cause for those with the same issue, you'll understand how annoying this is...) Any temp/perm fixes? Willing to mess about with it quite a bit just for it to stop happening... Thanks guys!

I would've thought the frequencies from the toms are exciting the snares and reso head. Could try tighten and re-tuning your snare (Or loosening it) drum. Also try tightening the snares on your snare drum too (Try this first as it's the simplest method)

They also let white people into the KFC and the NBA now.

Seems to have a cleared up a lot! Thanks very much, don't think I'm gonna be able to eliminate it completely but it's at the point now where it's simple to cope with. cheers again.

It's called sympathetic resonance or something, it's caused by having the snare drum tuned to a similar pitch to another drum.
You'll never get rid of it you just need to learn to embrace it

Btw don't dis your drums, head choice and tuning is much more important than the shells IMHO. Have a look at some Bob Gatzen tuning vids on Youtube, his bass drum tuning method was a revolution to me as is his snare tuning advice.

Dunno what the post after you was about tbh! - But yeah I couldn't agree with you more on the head choice & tuning being more important, I noticed such a big difference when I bought my first new skins years back replacing the ones it came with - sounded even better than when I first got them. I've sorta abandoned them though. Shame on me! Some TLC is in order.

I forgot to mention, try detuning the lugs on the reso head either side of the snare wires (4 in total). Just 1/4 or 1/2 turn could do, it helps with snare buzz and a lot of named players use the technique.
Another thing is to isolate which drum is causing the buzz and tune that to a slightly different pitch and see if it helps.
