Default Re: Bill Stewart

Nm, I think i figured it out. i was trying to tune the pitch of the individual head to the fundamental note of the drum in the recordings, and it ended up sounding way higher than it should've. I just listened to the overtones of the batter head in a recording and used that as a reference. Then i tuned the batter and resonance head to that pitch and the fundamental pitch matched up. For the floor tom, I tuned the heads a fourth below the high tom heads, again disregarding the fundamental note and focusing on the note of each head.
