But with tightening the batters a bit for tone, they rang too much for mic'ing.

But then I was out front watching three....yes..three other guys playing my drums and just was not impressed with the sound of my toms...or at least they didn't sound like I wanted them to.


I agree with Pete; changing the tension of the bottom head should shorten the duration of the tone and may make it easier for mic'ing. (????)

What was it about the sound from out front you didn't like. Was it too muffled, too high or low pitch or separation of tone between drums?

If it's too muffled raise the height maybe two inches if that's not too high. I did that Saturday and it made a nice difference; I did get a chance to hear my drums from out front for three songs.

I'm also using electronic tuners now and that helps me a lot with tom tone separation. I'm tuning them in thirds now and I'm also tuning both heads to the same note for maximum resonance in my situation.

Type heads for volume and tone; I'm not sure, I think I would use Coated Ambassador although I'm now using a Renaissance batter on my snare and that thing can get loud. I have no idea how they would sound on toms. I don't believe they will ring as long, they have a shouter snap on the snare.

Fiberskyn3's on my toms have a nice warm tone as well as the Fiberskyn3 PS3 on bass but I don't think they will be as loud as Coated Ambassador.
