I'm a long time keyboardist, short time guitarist, and have never played drums. I just purchased a used Tama Rockstar 5-piece last night to hopefully use in my home studio if I can become proficient enough to record something. I have a couple questions for the experts. After setting up the kit last night, I was fairly happy with the sound of all the drums except the kick. When I tightened the head fairly tight it had a very ringy sound, unbecoming of a bass drum. After I loosened the head a bit, the sound got deeper, had less ring, but still sounded pretty spongey with some echo. Is a blanket in the drum the answer or does this sound abnormal? Second, none of the toms came with bottom heads. Should I have bottoms put on? Thanks.
