has there been a thread about Stanton's cymbals? I should dig back and see.
I'm really quite happy with with my Giant Beat multis, but finding the right set of hats
has been a neverending journey for me. I would definitely like to test out the fat hats.
and I'll admit I'm curious about the pang. I really like the pitch and trash of that cymbal,
but I'm wondering how it will blend volume-wise with my Paistes.
next time I'm in Tennesse I'm going to give 'em a thorough going over.

Hi Stanton, Hi Guys,

I have your snare drum (the titanium one), but I have a problem tuning it. I'd like to get a Meters kind of sound at the center, but being able to do some buzz rolls on the side of the drum. A little bit like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjU-nIphPyw.

What should I do ?

Thanks!

Pete

hey pete, first off, thanks for buying the drum. i would say, make sure the bottom is about as tight as it will go with out popping.
also, make sure the snare wire tension is not too tight. back off the knob until the snare wires are rattling and barely touching the drum. then tension the snares just a bit tighter than that. tension to taste of course...
now tune the top head to taste. go pretty tight to get a meters style crack and make sure the snare wires aren't too tight so you can get the buzzes. also make sure all the tension rods are in tune with each other. back off the tension to finger tight and start over if you're not happy, start bringing the drum up about a half turn on each tension rod, till you're where you want to be and tap the head right by the tension rod to make sure all the rods are in tune with each other
let me know if that helps, stanton

Hi Stanton,

Thanks for the advice, the tuning went great, and the sound is amazing !

No trip in Europe planned by the way ?

Thanks again

Pete
