HOW TO TUNE SMALL TOMS TO SOUND LIKE BIG TOMS AT 2 DIFFERENT TUNING INTERVALS V2 WIX
Here is a great overview video discussing how to tune small toms to sound like big toms while still retaining attack for large rooms. Good for all toms, but especially helpful for those who own Mapex Drums. During this video you will learn step by step how to tune your toms to two different tuning intervals ( The Perfect 4th, and the Major 3rd) that help you get deeper tones out of smaller toms while still retaining attack. You will also hear a bit of discussion about the drums in terms of the series, and in terms of drummer Eric Boots Green. Mapex drums asked me to do an online tuning clinic at Lessonsquad.com discussing how I would put together a Mapex Saturn Evolution Kit for Mapex artist Eric "Boots" Green. He’s also one of the drummers for whom I tech. The clinic may have passed, but the tuning lessons still retain their value as this video is full of lessons that have succeeded in real life application for some of the biggest artists on the planet.
