  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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.

  4. Tuning a snare to perfect 4th's with a Tune-bot

    Here is another quick video I made on tuning my snare to a perfect 4th with the tune bot as well. I seemed to have pretty good results on it and it sounds amazing in the room. Lots of body and a nice...

    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...

    Re: Changing Resonant Heads

    I always use g2's over g1's, emperors's over ambassador's etc.
    I will change to different batters but always stick to single ply plain resos.

    I have been toying with putting a few cotton balls,...

    Playing the bar gig with punk and metal bands doesn't pay great. usually 100-300 a night depending on the turn out. Mind you, that is per band and for a 30-45 minute set. A bit different than being...

    That is a good point.. Hitting harder with lighter sticks isn't the point... Technique should remain the same no matter what stick you are using. I used to do the same which is why I didn't think...

  24. Re: Stain and clear coat on an old beat up kit with video

    You are actualy right, I didn't use filler and the slight texture looks pretty good. After sanding and polishing the clear it went a bit more matt and looks more natural too. As "cool" as that high...
