Workshop: How To Tune Drums In Four Steps - DRUM! Magazine

Workshop: How To Tune Drums In Four Steps - DRUM! Magazine | Drum Tuning | Scoop.it
We take the mystery out of drum tuning with this four-step process. Once you get it down it will be as easy as riding a bike.
Kevin Lowe's insight:

This one is nice just for its simplicity.  Not much is explained in-depth, but it is a very good first read for a student who has not yet tried changing and tuning a drum head.

Kevin Lowe's insight:

This is from Pearl, a top drum production company.  I like this because it can be easily printed out for students and has step-by-step instructions with accompanying pictures.

Kevin Lowe's insight:

I like this one about tuning a drum partially because it is from another famous drumhead company, but also because there is a video.  Sometimes the visual aspect is all someone needs to fully understand tuning a drum.
