Just recieved my drum kit in the mail yesterday and i'm in the process of assembling it. I bought a drum dial and the bass batter head recommendations are 68. By simply hand tightening the lugs so the washers are just touching the rim, i'm hitting a tension of 72.
I calibrated the drum dial, i seated my head so i'm wondering is it just the drum head type i'm using that requires a higher tension? Currently i have it tightened to 75.
i'm using a Evan Emad2 drum head
