    It's good that you are experimenting. In the long run you'll have a better handle on what you can expect and achieve with each different technique you invent or copy from somewhere else.

    Keep it up. It's all good knowledge.

    Oh yeah, pics and sound clips or it didn't happen.

    Hey Tigers....What Tom Heads do you use? Batter and Reso? Does this method transmit any more or less Snare Buz? THX for the info.

    I love experimenting too. There are a lot of drummers on the net that are very rigid in their approach to tuning and muffling. I say, just keep trying things and see what works for you. The important thing is to always have someone out front to give you their feedback as your drums can sound very different out front then they do to you behind the kit. Or, you can have someone play your drums while you go out front to get an idea of what they sound like.

    I'm playing in a Rock band (for the first time this century) and trying pre-muffled heads (Attack Toneridge 2 over Remo clear ambassadors). So far, I'm digging the sound, but undecided whether this is the ideal way to go. So many drummers hate pre-muffled heads, but--without exception--every time I see these guys' kits they're covered with unsightly tape, moongel, RemO rings, wallets, towels, bandanas, Beanie Babies, etc. etc. I know the saying "you can always add muffling, but you can't take it away," but I never see a wide-open unmuffled set in the wild--even at jazz gigs.
