Default Re: Trouble with tuning the snare....Help please

Hey man,
Before I suggest anything you need to bare in mind that these clips are from live shows. They have extremely good engineers behind a desk making there kits sound fat! I've done a lot of work with people like that and they can make a crap kit sound amazing!

First of what snare have you got? Also what is the depth, width, of the snare? Also the skins that you are using also have a large effect on the sound.

If all of those things match the snare in the vid then I suggest that you tighten the underneath skin first so it's nice and tight then adjust the head until you get a close sound. Don't forget the snares underneath either!! Adjust them till you get a nice sound too. It's all trial and era I'm afraid.

Hope that helps.
