    Re: What are the bottom tier kits to avoid

    How about you guys make a separate "whats your favorite sizes thread" to argue there as it is pretty off topic.

    As far as used, If there are wraps check the condition of the wraps. When you get...

    Re: Moongel workout pad review

    I'm older than I look. I have been playing probibly about 24 years myself but I totally understand. I will say in most recordings I do prefer the older stuff where bands recorded live off the floor...

    Re: Moongel workout pad review

    That's a pretty reasonable response.

    In regards to the tuners. Even if you could tune to where you prefer by ear, something like a tunebot could record those settings, then when you swap heads...

    Re: Moongel workout pad review

    It's a good way for FORCE people to have good technique. If you have this habit this pad will make you change how you play.

    It's a very common thing too. I used to be guilty of it myself. I...

    Moongel workout pad review

    I made a review of the Moongel workout pad and compared it to my 4 other pads in this video. This thing is a great way to get your fingers cooperating with the stick better. If you want your...
  7. Re: Tuning a snare to perfect 4th's with a Tune-bot

    I must have missed something. If you play larger gigs, or spend time in the studio that is all pretty common stuff. Almost every sound guy will EQ your drums to take out many of the mid range...
  8. Re: Tuning a snare to perfect 4th's with a Tune-bot

    Bink to me sounds very bright and short and choked. toom sounds like pitch bend. But I have never heard those words to describe either.

    I agree with the venue statement. I have a backpack with...
  9. Re: Tuning a snare to perfect 4th's with a Tune-bot

    I was expecting those reactions and comments here. I also Usually tune it to sound like a snare drum without a tuner. But once AGAIN I tried this as an experiment and had pretty good results.

    Re: Drum tuning to notes using the Tune-bot

    I didn't get to exact intervals between my kit. I will tune a tom to sound good, then hit them and see if it should be lower or higher. The relation is only between batter and reso. Having a 14...

    Re: Drum tuning to notes using the Tune-bot

    Even just doing it by ear I always prefer a small pitch bend. I find myself putting gels on more when I tune to the same pitch. This is a more punchy sound with a shorter decay. There is nothing...

    Re: Drum tuning to notes using the Tune-bot

    I agree something is off with the floor tom. I'm not 100% sold it's the tuning though. They are year old heads and the mic position on that one was pretty bad too. I'm going to play around with it a...

    Re: Drum tuning to notes using the Tune-bot

    I had a Drum dial, and the tunebot and a few more things sitting downstairs for years. I figured they were all gimmics and didn't work well and I kept trying and half the time my drums would end up...

    Re: Drum tuning to notes using the Tune-bot

    I'll check it out for sure. This was more for experimentation and seeing how a perfect 4th between the reso and batter sounded. On a one up one down kit I'd tune a 5th BETWEEN DRUMS, and a 4th...

    Re: Snare Tuning

    Tunebot will help first off. I find between 270 and 350 are the sweet spot for the batter, between 380 and 420 for the reso.

    If your reso is too tight it will sound choked and papery.. When I...
