How do you do it? how does it work? How do you know what sizes to get if you dont know yours?
not to be picky but you forgot 6", 15", 18" toms and 24" and 26" bass/kick drums. yes there are larger kicks but they are rare.xdoseonex":3l457qa2 said:measure them with a tape mesure. drum sizes are 8" 10" 12" 13" 14" and 16" and the bass drum is usualy gonna be either 20" or 22". your set is most likely 12",13",16" with a 22" bass drum. but measure everything to make sure. after you have the sizes. decide what brand of heads you want to use and go to theyre website for head combination reccomendations. or just ask the guy at your local drumshop.
to change the heads you need a drum key. use it to loosen all the tension rods around the rim of the drum. there will probly be 6 or 8 of them. lift the rim off and take off the old drum head. wipe down the bearing edge (the edge of the drum where the head sits) with a cloth to free it of any dust that may have built up. and put your new head on, put the rm back on and finger tighten the tension rods. press down in the center of the drumhead with firm pressure. this will "seat" the head to allow it to be tuned properly. to tune your drums press down in the middle of the drumhead with 1 hand, and with the other tighten your tension rods til you relieve all the wrinkles in the drumhead. once this is done the head is ready to be tuned. hit it with a stick ner every lug and bring the pitches as close as you possibly can. so theres even tension all around the drums. keeing even tension n al the tension rods tune the drum how you want it to sound.
I'll let someone else hande resonant heads
