Default Re: Too Tight... ! Is it??

It seems to me that you are tuning really tight.
The tension rods on my tom batters are about 1/2 turn from where the tension rod first begins to tension the hoop. Reso's are about the same.
The batter on my bass drum is about 1/2 turn after the rod first begins to tension the hoop.
The rods on the reso are about one turn.
That is on my Rock kit, my Jazz kit is slightly tighter. About 1/2 turn.
I kind of like old drums:)
