Sound and tuning are so subjective I know, it’s pretty hard to get a definitive answer to a question such as this. I see all different types of suggestions and all different types of examples in professional settings. Batter tighter than reso, batter looser than reso, Emad, P3, Superkick......I understand. Having a 24x14 for the first time in my playing career, I thought maybe there was a “formula” per se that gets “that” sound out of this kick. That doesn’t seem to be the case and that is perfectly cool. I have it sounding great right now, just not how I expected. It’s all good, and all this experimenting has helped me get to know this kick drum very well. I’m curious to see the frequency settings from Tommy D and any other input this thread will receive. Thanks everyone!!
