I’m creating a part for suspended cymbal which often changes back and forth between a “normal” beater (i.e. a felt headed mallet I assume) and a snare drum stick.
A neat way to show the changes would be use two different note heads. Is there a “standard” convention for this? Obviously the score will have a text description of the notation used, but there’s no sense doing it different from the rest of the world just for the sake of it.
This is a single-line staff instrument with its own player, not part of a drum kit.
