Want Great Drum Tracks? Tune Up!

Watch a great studio drummer during a session and you’ll notice something right away: they’re constantly tuning their drum heads. Just as guitarists and bassists should check their tuning before every take due to strings slipping and sliding, so do drum heads move in and out of tune very quickly. This is especially true when overdubbing, punching in, or recording multiple takes for comping purposes; in those situations tuning issues become very quickly apparent.

The Overtone Labs TuneBot and the Tama Tension Watch can be a big help in tuning drums!
