I did tune that 14 to a D#, sounds way better......

Re: Question about Shell Tone and Tuning w/Tune-Bot

I do the same, tune to what my ear likes and then tune-bot the evenness. I also never had a tool to truly see how the degree of adjustment changes things. No...

Hi All!

Re: One or two mids toms?

I think drum size dictates the configuration a lot. That, and style of music.

I was in a heavy rock style band with a 20" bass and 8, 10, 12, 14 setup. It just doesn't work live... in a studio,...

Re: Help Choose My Focus - Drums or Bass
