Re: Please, help with HEADS and tunning for a Superstar Hyperdrive
First off: are you still using the heads that came with the kit? They are garbage. New heads are a must.
Second: just to make sure, you know that drum sounds that you hear on CDs and such are commonly very processed and will not sound how they do in the real life, correct?
Anyways, for a low tone, the batter will generally be pretty low and the resos as well, but I would take the reso up a 3rd or so- higher-tuned drums generally sound better to the audience. (i have the same kit, so, yeah).
I don't have any problems with a cardboard-like sound from mine. It's likely the stock heads (if you are using them).
