Re: Todd Sucherman here!
I was watching your DVD again for the 95th time (heh heh) and just love the snare sound you get out of all your snares... especially that Stanbridge-ProMark one.
I know you answered questions before about the head choice and tuning... could you elaborate just slightly more.. like maybe what notes or tensions you are putting the heads top and bottom on the snare drum? Is it something like "On the top head if you push down with a finger, the head hardly gives..."?
I know it's slightly subjective for each person to say "medium", "tight" or "crank it up", but to where? :)
I also have to add that EVERY time I watch segments from the DVD, I am highly motivated to march right upstairs and play my own kit. I've never felt more encouraged in my entire life. Thanks Todd.
I've been drumming for 35 years. I'm 34 years old.
