Default Re: Update on Wac'd Drums

Thanks Gary and KIS,
I put a Drum Dial on the drum just to see what it tensioned out at.
The batter single ply coated head measured about 86
and the thin bottom head measured about 82.
That is what I normally tune a snare to with conventional lugs.
A snare bottom max's out at about 82 on my dial.
I havent even put good heads on this drum yet.
These are just Chinese Remo's.
I will put good heads on when I wrap it.
I think that a higher quality snare bottom will take a slight bit more torque.
I kind of like old drums:)
