Tuning Heads


New member
I recently upgraded all of my heads (8, 10, 12, 13,16) to Remo Ebony Pinstripe. These things are a bear to keep tuned, or even get a good tune. I'll admit, my tuning goes as far as i can hear a good sound, but is there any good advice in tuning these? I also have the DrumDial, which helps (if you first know what tension sounds good).

Please help!

If you have a good ear, try tuning to exact pitches. I've found that when I jam with other musicians, most of the songs are either in D or E minor, so I usually tune them to triads in those key signatures. This helps the drums "sing" a little with the music.
