For further example, I only torque about 3/4 to 1 turn above JAW. I tune kind of medium/tight on my bass batter.
Ah, my bad, I don't know why I claimed two, I always count half-turns because I have one of these goofy old Ludwig does-everything tools. It's probably closer to one, or one-and-a-half. But I do often tune it a bit tighter, because it helps the drum sustain and cut through.
