Hello everyone. Here’s a quick discussion on a topic I encounter in EVERY tuning lesson I do, so I figured it is a worth a short blog for my members. The topic is based upon these questions. “Have you ever tried tuning up a drum when it’s really loose or really tight, and it doesn’t seem to change pitch that quickly?”, “Have you ever had a drum that you tried to tune down just a little, but it dropped in pitch quickly, and basically came unraveled with only a small set of turns? “ and “Have you ever tightened a drum up with what you thought were just a little set of turns, but it went way up in pitch?” . If so this blog is for you. The reason these things happens is due to what I like to call tension planes/thresholds, and the way to avoid these issues is by using micro turns.
