Default Re: Drum Tuning iPhone App

And to expand what Netz Ausg is asking: The first and most challenging part of tuning a drum is getting the pitch of the head equal at all lugs. When doing that tuning you generally listen for the sound of the overtones right at the lug; you generally tap the drum head 1/2" to 1" from the rim. The fundamental of the drum is strongest when playing the drum in the exact center of the head. For that matter, would it be possible for it to display some or all of the frequencies detected, the fundamental and first few overtones? Then you'd have an even better idea of what the drum head was doing.
