Re: Good bass drum muffling/tuning
My bass drum has a PS3 batter and an Aquarian 2ply reso with no port hole. Batter is 1/4 turn over wrinkle and reso is 1 turn over wrikle. I have a small foam pillow ( 2 x18 1/4 ) and it just barely touches both heads and the sound is nice loud with no overtones.
Keep on drumming and have fun doing it.
