My friend is a drummer and I just finished work on a small studio I built. His drums are in the room now and the toms (floor and 12" rack) sound like crap. He has coated Remo heads on top and clear on the bottom. They are very timpany sounding rather than rock sounding. I like a good thud in my toms and just a bit of ring. So how do you all tune your drums? I don't know much more than going around the rim with a stick held in the center to make sure the tone is consistent. Thanks for any advice. BTW: It's a Pearl Session series with the floating toms.
