Re: Sick sweat minor 9th drum harmony

I agree.

But this seems to be splitting hairs over a technicality. I think most people who tune to pitches are more concerned with practicality. "What is the listener going to hear?"

A...

Re: Sick sweat minor 9th drum harmony

I don't know about "absolute pitch," but it's most definitely possible for a double-headed drum to produce a solid, clear, and well-defined fundamental pitch.

I threw together a quick tuning...

Re: Intervals baby!

I have an 8-piece with 10", 12", 13", 14", and 16" toms tuned around a Cmaj9 chord. So, low to high, C, E, G, B, D.

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

Very interesting results. Several months ago I found myself trying out many similar trial-and-error experiments in an attempt to better understand the mechanics behind drum tuning (well, actually I...

Re: Drum Dial accuracy?

The pitches will be different (though, probably only slightly), since tension is not the only variable in the equation of sound.

I know we're talking drums here, but here's an interesting online...

Re: 8/10/12 or 10/12/13

I think the 13" fits in just fine with a 5 tom setup since, generally, the more toms you have, the smaller the musical interval between them tends to be.

I have a 3 up 2 down setup in the 10",...

Re: Tune Bot ordered

Alternatively, you can try out a software tone generator. There are plenty of free ones available (such as Audacity) that allow you to generate a sine wave at any frequency you choose.

Re: I can't get drum tuning down

Once you reach the fine tuning stage, I would suggest using a reference pitch from something like an online keyboard or some other outside source that can generate a long lasting or continuous tone. ...

Re: Best drum tuner out there?

If you need accurate tuning, use an outside reference pitch. Anything from a software tone generator, to asking your guitar player for a specific note will do.

Shouldn't take much more than 60...

Re: Drumdial users

I think there's some misunderstanding in what the advocates of ear tuning are saying. We're not saying that you can't get a good sounding drum, we're saying that the Drum Dial is not accurate enough...

Pretty much. If you really wanted to, you could pick up a machinists dial indicator (something like this one) (http://www.harborfreight.com/1-inch-travel-machinists-dial-indicator-623.html), drill a...

Re: What song are you playing on drums?

Amon Amarth: "Death in Fire", and "The Hero."

Trying to work on double-bass endurance and control (okay, so maybe I'm just interested in speed), and I've been using these two songs as kind of a...

Re: Anyone interested in recording drums for a song?

That sounded really good. In a quick casual listen, I didn't pick up on any mistakes. And, after hearing the track with vocals, I think your version compliments them much better than mine.

Re: Anyone interested in recording drums for a song?

Last week I picked up some of those super cheap Pyle Pro drum mics and a USB interface. Saw this thread and figured I'd give it a shot. Keep in mind... I'm no pro, lol.

Downloaded the mp3,...

Re: Best drum tuner out there?

I tune based on the longest sustaining tone.

Your tuning meter is likely bouncing around because of the overtones drums naturally produce. Most tuners work well on stringed instruments like...

Put me down for the DW beaters as well. Good volume and attack using the plastic side. I like their weight, and they feel pretty balanced overall.

I just recently (like, two days ago) picked up...

Re: Best drum tuner out there?

Yeah, that is one drawback when tuning drums by ear. Drums naturally produce overtones, and after enough time, your ears will tend to "get tired," making it more difficult to focus accurately on an...

Re: Best drum tuner out there?

I'm biased; so of course I'm going to say the ear.

But, out of all the different drum tuning gadgets on the market, the Tune-Bot is the next best thing, in my opinion. The reason is simple:...

Re: Does the Tune-Bot work like they say?

I'm surprised it took so long for a device like the Tune-Bot to come out (or, at least catch on). It seems to me it's basically just a standard digital tuner (like you'd use for a guitar or...

Re: Reso heads tighter or looser than batter?

I tend to prefer both heads tuned to the same pitch for toms, batter a minor third higher on snare. Bass drum, I don't really concern myself much with exact pitches.

I definitely notice a...

Re: How to Tune Drums to Notes by Ear

Yeah, this has held true for my drums at least. I have a 10, 12, 13, 14, 16 inch tom setup, and their final pitch has always been exactly 9 semi-tones lower than the reference pitched used to tune...

How to Tune Drums to Notes by Ear

Hello fellow members of the Drummerworld Forum. I must, admit, it feels kinda odd saying "fellow members" as I haven't been a member for long, and have mostly only lurked. I'm not a very proficient...

I tune with the greatest speed and accuracy when utilizing an outside reference pitch that isn't effected by whatever adjustments I make to the drum. It takes me much longer trying to arbitrarily...

Re: Best purchases you've made for drums.

Investing in a comfortable, high quality drum throne seems to be an undervalued, yet very worthwhile venture.
