Hey folks.. could use some advice. I have never been the best at tuning drums, at least in my opinion, and no matter what approach I take to getting the right sound it never works. Now I have a PDP X7 maple set with Evans G2 coated heads. I prefer a sound with little to no overtones but whenever I tune my drums they just sound very garbage can like, and although I can acquire equal pitch throughout the whole drum it still rings forever. The only way I can get a good sound out of these drums is to throw on the muffle rings which make the ringing stop but also kills the natural sound of the drum. One last thing, I do use a drum dial to get equal tension but as I found out it doesn't actually tune the drum. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
