one tip though
if there's a spot in a snare you really like but cant really bring out (without changing the sound too much) it can be an idea to do a filter notch on the other sounds that occur in that 'rather small frequency range' or 'sweet spot' - as opposed to equing out bits.
because a notch (by being part of a filter), will have some definite musical and tonal capabilities - whereas a lot of eqs are more just sterile or clean sounding in comparison
so it becomes easier (sometimes) to balance the more tonal resonating kind of subtracting that a notch does with the quite abstract tonal capabilities a snare could have, than just having a tight q on an eq
wait this wasn't a tip lol more like me learning english - hope it helps
