Came across this online and thought his specific head pitches were interesting..

Yeah I'll never understand why people even bother to make demonstration videos where they don't play the damn thing. I want to hear it, first and foremost. It's a musical instrument. It makes a sound. What sound does it make!?
I tuned drums and refurbished drums for like 20 years before finally deciding to learn to play. It was because the drummers I played with wouldn't/couldn't do it themselves
Doesn't he demonstrate the sound at the beginning in three video clips and then tell how tight he tunes each head and that he tunes each lug to the same pitch but he's not as anal about the pitch as he is with toms? Seems ok to me.
