Re: speed cobra and bass drum setup, adjustement for best results?
No hard and fast rules on settings. If you're finding things aren't working at higher tension, try a lower tension! Give your pedals a bit more time before you junk them as well. Try out different settings for longer periods of time, don't just play for 10 minutes and keep switching around, or you'll never get used to any feeling.
