Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Erik,

It would be the D# below middle C in the earlier example. D#3 about 155.6 Hz. I don't think I'll be uploading many individual samples, but my wife keeps trying to get me to do a video. I'd...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

What are you tuning your snare to? It needs to be above the 8 or treat it like a tom and put it between two of the toms pitch wise. I don't like 8s for this very reason.

Re: Waiting for one tom

I had to wait 6 months for my 16 Oak Custom tom. I was told it was the last Yamaha drum made by the Sakae family. Worth the wait.

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Not very. I find the manual a little useless and clipping it on the rim makes it malfunction quite a bit.

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

You're welcome. I'm surprised more people have not checked it out. The separation between the first two are the same. I like C minor all 4ths the best. I'll upload that one and some others later...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

For now I'll just continue this here since this is where it started. All 4 toms were meticulously tuned to exact notes. When a drum is struck, like many plucked or struck instruments, it starts sharp...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

That's a pretty strange setup unless he was aiming for a Glen Johns type setup with one above the snare and another one over your shoulder point toward the floor tom. That can sound kinda cool.

I...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Okay, so it's been a long time since I posted this original thread, and I have TONS of data to present. Here's what's coming.....

I had to special order a 16 for my Oak kit before I could fully...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Just got a Yamaha Oak Custom that I'll be optimizing over the next week or two. Tuning range seems similar to Birch with the projection of a thicker Maple shell. The toms are more even in volume with...

Re: Drum Shields??

Well from a mixing standpoint, wouldn't it be more logical to put a shield around the vocalist since they are the quietest and most susceptible to bleed from stage volume? Just having a little fun...

Re: Drum Shields??

Seriously? Is there some kind of bizarre trend in worship bands using Z Customs, or were you just referring to Zildjian in general? I don't think I would use Z's unless I was playing right beside a...

Re: Drum Shields??

If it makes the check writer happy, it makes me happy. I use IEM's so sonically it makes no difference to me. The other band members do complain about not being able to hear my hats and ride, as well...

Re: Need recording advice!

That's my thought as well, which is why I has asked him to try out just one tom mic with nothing else and see if it sounded thin and puny. Just as a test to see if it was indeed phase problems with...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Thanks for that. I'm more about getting the most out of kits that regularly come into the studio than designing one, but I'm sure I'll start to see how these thing interplay as I continue my...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Read the link above. Specific question not answered within. It talks more about the EQ properties and not the note and tuning range or internal diameter of shells.

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Quick question for drum makers as I'm not positive. I would assume that the outer diameter of a shell would need to remain close to constant for the sake of fitting standard heads. Therefore, if the...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

I do want to do some deeper shells of the same diameter. Everything I have and have access too is about the same. I'm looking around for some Yamaha Recording Customs to try out. Hopefully in their...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Just an update, really diving into the Gretsch New Classic today. The tuning range on this drum is much wider than the Catalina Birch. I've managed to get it up to an A so far with a solid tone. I'm...

Re: Any big name drummers ever do something to rub you the RIGHT way?

Portnoy went on the bus to tuck his wife into bed before doing a meet and greet. Said something like "she comes first guys, let me tuck her into bed and I'll be back in a few." I thought it was...

Re: Using overheads live (in small clubs/outdoor areas)

It's really going to be all in the mic and how you position it. I will say this. I run a mono overhead for my in ear monitor rig. It doesn't go to the PA, but just lets me hear my cymbals better with...

Re: Blisters On Fingers From Drumming...?

I used to get blisters a lot when I first started. Bad technique like other say and just not building up callouses yet. That all went away when I started working with the Dave Weckl videos ( the...

Re: Favorite metal drummer?

I'm a big fan of Shannon Lucas in the metal world. Watching these guys play un-edited is what does it for me.

Re: Need recording advice!

Depending on your definition of body. I usually hear that term tossed around to mean low end. If they're thin and lacking low end, seems like that would be the opposite of a proximity problem. Sounds...

Re: Need recording advice!

What are the "cheap clip-ons?" How does the room sound? With a 2 tom setup like that, I like to use Shure KSM32's top and bottom. Clip on anything is bad for recording IMO. You get too much stuff....
