Tuning drums

My daughter and I spent a couple of hours at the studio tonight tuning the toms. I purchased a Drum Dial that allows one to easliy measure the tension of the head at each lug. The goal is to match at each lug and then the head is in tune with it self.

Running through this exercise made a HUGE difference. The toms are well spaced musically from one another and the overtones and ringing I used to get seem to be almost entirely gone.

Tomorrow night I'll need to set up the snare drum with a new top head and we will likely begin tracking Kiss Me Goodbye.
