Default Re: Bonham tuning

there is no solid answer. it's not even logical to have your heads at the same pressure through all of them when you press your finger in. you'll have an odd, uneven degression of pitch if you try to tune your heads all to the same "pressure."

just mess with it. you know what the sound needs to be. if it's ringing, it's resonating. the logical debugger would say that the resonant head is thus at fault for the excessive resonance.

but then again, what do logical debuggers know?

tune your resonant head down a bit, and then do whatever you'd like to your floor tom.

i personally dont think bonhams toms sounded good at all, but that's your set you're tuning.
