    Open Handed Playing

    I've been playing for 35+ years and about 1 1/2 years ago I started playing with a band that does some Journey covers.

    Yamaha 14" tuning

    I have a Yamaha Stage Custom with 10, 12 & 14" toms. I have Evans Black Onyx heads. I love the sound from the 10 & 12 but the 14 just won't join the party. This is a suspended mount floor tom. To get a good tone I need to tighten the head to where it's almost as high as the 12" Has anyone...
