    Awesome Aaron! cheers

    Hey Aaron – I was just wondering if you could give me any advice on tuning
    a 16×16 birch floor tom. It’s a good quality shell but it sounds like ass
    because I cannot tune it effectively. Nice snare – but SQ2 Beech Heavy
    remains supreme.

    ive been diggin your grooves lately and the different styles u use for each
    snare 🙂 kreep up the good work

  7. Xanadude575 says:

    You make anything resembling a drum sound incredible!

  8. [..YouTube..] @Eleutherarch don’t tune it too low and make sure the lugs have kind of equal tension. and don’t underestimate the reso head.

  19. [..YouTube..] @allmetaliswelcome good call!

  20. [..YouTube..] @Eleutherarch Hey man! What kind of heads do you have on it? What is the drum exactly? I’ve personally preferred coated heads as batters on all my birch toms I’ve had. So without knowing more, my suggestion would be a Coated G2 up top and either a clear G1 or an EC Resonant reso. From there, tune the top head as low as you can without getting any wrinkles and keeping the tension even across the lugs. Adjust the reso til you don’t get any weird boingy overtones. Maybe a piece of moongel on batter

  21. [..YouTube..] @aaronedgardrum what tuning would you recommend for the reso ^_^? mine is kinda boingy, but my whole set’s still got the stock heads on so that could be to blame too…

    [..YouTube..] such a wicked tension you got going on at 19 sec

    [..YouTube..] @aaronedgardrum Cheers for replying – I have an Evans coated G2 batter and a G1 clear resonant. The same combination really makes my 10 inch tom sing. But I can’t really get this 16″ Pearl VBX Floor Tom to have any real note clarity without sounding choked or very unpleasant. I will try to tune as low as possible on the top to see whether it’ll make a difference. I have a feeling that the batter head hoop might be slightly warped though.

    [..YouTube..] @aaronedgardrum On a slightly unrelated note, have you ever played any of the Sonor Delite brass snares? I really, really fancy picking one up, but there aren’t many people that seem to have them.

  38. [..YouTube..] @allmetaliswelcome That’s a tough call without hearing it, but honestly, with stock heads, that’s probably a big part of the problem right there. Boingy usually means it’s a little too high though. One thing you can try cause stock heads are usually gross, is to muffle it a little bit. You can moongel inside, or use a little tape. Tape some paper towel to it. Just experiment til it’s not gross 😛

  49. [..YouTube..] @Eleutherarch If your batter head hoop is warped, that’s for sure going to be an issue. Check that out, take it off and put it on a flat surface to see.

    Also, using a sound controlled reso head on bigger drums is ok too. So if you switched to the EC reso on your floors it also might be a problem solver. If you don’t want to buy new heads, consider maybe even trying to muffle the bottom slightly (and i mean slightly, you don’t want it dead)

  80. [..YouTube..] @4lifepaintballa15 Nice!! P90X rules! I did that a couple years ago, after I get back from NAMM I’m doing P90X2, it’s sitting in my living room taunting me 😛

    I want to lose a little bit still, but after that it’s time to put on some more muscle mass!

  86. [..YouTube..] @4lifepaintballa15 Man, Insanity is CRAZY compared to P90X. Easily twice to three times as intense. But worth it! It makes you feel like a million bucks! If you’ve done P90X or even part of it and feel like you can handle a step up, I HIGHLY recommend it! I loved it 🙂

    Any tips on tuning? I have an SQ2 snare in the same config. Right now G2 medium tension over hazy 300 high tension

  96. aaronedgardrum says:

    Hey man! Sorry for the super late reply, that sounds about where I’d go with it. I do have a video specifically on how to tune your snare drum. (It should show up in the related videos from this one).

    Have you tried the G12 heads? I haven’t put one on this drum yet, but I think it would be a cool thing to try!
