How to Tune a Drum Head Properly

About: Hello. My name is Stratton Pastetnik. I am quite fond of drumming, drawing and finding and inventing life hacks to benefit others. Your welcome in advance.

If you want to tune your drum head but it does not sound the was you want, follow these steps

Step 1: Take Your Skin Off Completely.

Just take off your skin in this step.

Step 2: Finger Tighten It

Tighten the head the tightest you can using only your fingers. This will give you a roughly even tighten on all sides.

Step 3: Start the Tightening

Start tightening in the pattern as shown in the photos

Step 4: Polish Up

When you have a good tighten on your drum, remember to polish up for a good sounding drum. For a tight sound, tighten it tighter than usual. For a dark sounding drum, tighten it but not as tight. (If you really want a dark drum, I can suggest 2 ply heads)
