Hey there. I'm not actually a drummer. However, I know a few things about the drums, and I have a question. How can I acquire a really tinny tone, like Catch 22 or Streetlight Manifesto, from the snare drum? Is there a really good brand for this type of thing or do I just need to make the snare really ****ing tight?

Thanks in advance.

Tighten the head. It'll make more of a popping sound.

I believe there's also a special kind of snare for more that kind of sound. I want to say it's called a piccolo snare, but I'm sure that's completely wrong.

You are correct. They are like half the depth of a standard snare.
