Technical Drum Tuning


These sites cover the technical aspects of drums, how they work, resonance, muffling, and most of all drum tuning. Gretsch Drums for example tune their drums using an oscilloscope. I hope that this information will help the new as well as the pros understand more about drum tuning.

Hi! Some good resources here. I also have written a short guide here: How to tune a drum kit - Audiofanzine

Hope it is OK to post it here!

Re: Technical Drum Tuning


This is great advice.

I would like to add that the accoustics wether it be indoors, a stage or outdoors, is another factor that affects the proper tuning of any drumkit.

Thanks for tuning in.

Peace
