Heads for marching snares

I have Pearl marching drums (with the double rim- that you can really tighten the heads). I have regular batter heads on the drums, but they don’t produce a nice crisp sound (they sound more like a concert head). I have tightened the heads, but don’t want them to break. What kinds of sticks should my HS players be using for marching band? They are using a general Vic Firth stick (probably that they started with). Any suggestions?
Vic Firth Ralph Hardimon sticks are great, they’re roughly the same cost as an SD1 General stick, and are much more durable. They also sound better on a marching snare, since the beads were designed specifically for that purpose. Ralphie Jr.’s are a smaller, more manageable version that can be harder to find in stores (One of the great things about Hardimon’s sticks is their avaiability at most music stores).
