This has all been very educational.

After reading every suggestion in this thread and trying some more ideas, I think I have found something closer to what I want by loosening the snares to around a 'medium-long' sustain length, messing with the top head tuning some more, and adding yet another foam ring around the top head edge (it's just sitting on top of the other one). It's getting more of that "shotgun" sound I want, a sharp attack and a medium sustain, with less metallic basketball "bong".

I'll post a test mp3 when my replacement SPDIF cable gets here. I also saved a test with the snare as it came to me, setup however the owner preferred it, so I'll put both up for comparison and you guys can tell me if I made it worse or better.
