Hello everyone. Thanks for stopping in to read my latest drum tuning/tech blog. I’ve been reading a lot of articles on drums, and drumming during my 2 week self quarantine after returning from a postponed UK tour. One of the articles I came across was an awesome review of drum kits for Jazz drumming on an awesome site called Jen Reviews at https://www.jenreviews.com . Not only did I find tons of great articles on self help, product reviews, and health tips, but they also had an AWESOME overview of some great drum kits for jazz drumming via their Beginner Guitar HQ page https://beginnerguitarhq.com/best-jazz-drum-kits/. In this post they talked about a drum kit that I have, that I love, that is great for jazz drumming, and for which I’ve done a whole slew of drum tuning videos for my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/KennySharretts The kit is the Ludwig Questlove Breakbeats Kit. While there were many great drum sets in the Jenn Reviews article the QBB kit is affordable, portable, and I’ve been using it extensively on my gigs as I recovered from a broken ankle. (IT’S SOOOO EZ to lug around). Hence I have a good idea of how to tune it, and what heads would sound best on this particular drum set.
