Alright all,

Ive got a Yamaha Beech Custom (not absolute) in a Lime Green.
I love yamaha drums and prefer them to any other ive played.
The only thing is,im rubbish at tunning my drums and i cant seem the right heads.
I prefer my bass drum (20") with nothing inside as i like a big sound (though only a small drum) but the problem im havin is the toms.
Cant seem to get a good sound out of them.
Im a rock drummer,sometimes a heavy hitter but not hevay.
Just wondering if any1 has any hints on what heads etc to use and how to tune.

Check out some topics on tuning on this forum. As I personally play rock. I'd suggest tuning both heads the same pitch- that way you'll get the most resonating, powerfull sound.
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.
I want an endorsement :)
