Default Re: Update on Wac'd Drums

I like my snares cranked top and bottom and with these lugs it is possible. Remember one thing. The typical snare side head is only 3 mil thick while most batters are 7, 10, 12 or more. The snare side or reso head will tend to tighten faster than the batter and for me this works fine. Also most people use thinner resos on their toms than they do batters so the same effect applies. Even if you want to tune both heads to the same pitch it can be done. Because of the lug mechanics, if you wish to detune your snare from crack to thud you can do it with one lug. I have done this on three drums. Hip hop sound to old Billy Joel fat snare in seconds and the other parts of the head will stay in tune. You can tap at each lug and get the same tone. I will be glad to make another video to show how this works.
