Should I tune my drums high or low? Help me decide.
I think he's being humorous, as MZ just posted a half dozen "Ringo, good or bad? / tuning high or low? / zildjian or sabian?" threads to get a rise out of everyone. I'm pretty sure he's kicking back watching it burn right now. I need to go buy a good cigar.OK Mr. Semantics.
Here is the easy way to do this.
Tune one rack tom high, and one rack tom low. Have someone else play your drums. Go out in the audience and listen to them. Then you will know.
This is what I did. The high tuning won hands down. The high tuning cut right through the loud guitars and bass.
However, if I were using then for recording purposes, I'd tune them lower.
