Which drum, which diameter, which register C? You could tune a 10" or 12" tom batter head to C and your batter head to A minor and I would call that normal.roulette":20in9jc4 said:Is this possible, and if so, how can I do it? I also bought the DrumDial tuner, as I'm not real good with tuning yet, and this thing makes it a breeze. There's a guide with different pressures for the different drums, does anyone know what could be possible to get to C?
Well, I don't share this opinion...break the prism":lewb5z59 said:if you were to get a chromatic tuner with an input/output cable you could actually plug the output into the port of your drums and tune them precisely. but the only downside of that is if you were to have a song in say...Drop or Standard D with drums still tuned to C. you'd have to retune them to at least a harmony.
This is the same basic principle Terry Bozzio uses. If anyone cared to e-mail him, I bet he could explain his theories on and the mathematical relationship to shell diameter.vgarate":2frdpqau said:I tune my set (batters) like this.
Snare: A (batter)
Bass d.: C
Tom 10x10: F
Tom 12x10: D
Tom 13x11: B
Floor Tom: G
Reso heads are half tune below.
And I play every song in any tone without being out of tune. :wink:
