snare drum tuning


New member
i just bought a 10 ply maple i used to have a steel shell snare. just wondering if any one had tuning tips for the maple snare.

I have a 14x5.5 maple and I tighten the batter head just about as tight as I can get, then the resonant head I also tighten but only about half as tight, I keep the snares relatively tight, but not all the way or it will choke, this has given me a beautiful loud pop sound that to me is to die for, and a very responsive snare drum, I love it, give it a shot, goodluck.
