Default Remo Emperor Vintage

I replaced the original tom heads that came on the Tama Rockstar kit with some Remo Emperor Vintage heads & what a difference it made. I just did the tops but plan on doing the bottoms in a couple of weeks. This is my first drum set so I have a lot to learn. Any tips or tricks on tuning them?

Just be sure your tensioning is even from rod-to-rod. I do this: put the head on and then tighten each rod finger-tight, then give one a half-turn with a key all the way around. Then, take your finger and push down in the center about a quarter inch, then tap the head at each tension rod. You'll hear a tone at each rod. Make the tones all match all around the drum and you have even tensioning. The trick to keeping it even is to go across from rod-to-rod. So if you tune one, then you go to the rod exactly on the opposite side. The tone is your choice ;)

If it's confusing, check out the Bob Gatzen tuning videos on YouTube. He is one of the undisputed masters of drum tuning. Definitely knows how to get a better sound out of a drum more than I do ;)
