POWERTONE/UV2 TOM TUNING TUTORIAL WIX FULL LESSON FINAL
Howdy All! Here's my latest Step by Step drum tuning lesson "PowerTone/UV2 TomTuning Tutorial" in which I take you STEP BY STEP from ground to sound through three great tom tuning intervals for a 12"/14" tom setup while maintaining a Perfect 4th interval BETWEEN the toms at all tunings. These are intervals I've used in my 22 years as a pro drum tech tuning drums for artists such as Stevie Wonder, Rhianna, and Dead & Co. With step by step overhead shots/graphs, pitches, tune bot settings, AND drum dial settings this is a GREAT tutorial for any drummer wanting to learn how to tune a drum step by step to 3 great tom tuning intervals. Tuning interval 1: Even tuning where the batter, and resonant heads of the toms are tuned equally to the same pitch. This interval has a long sustain, and a very rich tone. Usually a touch more pillowy as the heads move together in a similar wave pattern. Great for everything in terms of a basic all around drum sound. Tuning Interval 2: Reso a Major 3rd Higher Than The Batter. This tuning tightens up the sustain while keeping a round tone. A bit more definition, and attack. Great for classic rock, country, R & B, and jazz. Tuning Interval 3: Reso a Perfect 4th Higher Than The Batter. This tuning tightens up the sustain even more while keeping a warm tone, but with a bit more punch, definition, and attack. Great for rock, modern country, gospel, pop, and outdoor/large venues.
