Default Different amount of plies

What are the different amounts of plies for regarding sound?
I've always used two ply because I figured it would last longer...

Also, my friend applied to GC today and had to take a prior knowledge quiz and one of the questions was what amount of plies is easier to tune. what's the answer?

Default Re: Different amount of plies

Oh you must be talking about drum heads, not drums... hahah wasn't clear. 2-ply are more durable, can tune to a lower note, don't sustain as much, and have less overtones as a 1-ply drumhead.

As for the question, no clue. Either 1- or 2-ply drumheads can be successfully tuned. I never thought about which one is "easier." They seem equally "easy"... or "hard", depending on how you look at it!
