Why Tune Your Drums

Why tune your drums, you ask? For the same reason you would tune any instrument… to sound your best and get the truest voice possible from your kit. A kit that has each component tuned to key that makes sense in relation to the other instruments sounds fuller and more cohesive. Unless they are completely muted, the pieces that are not directly struck by the sticks will still resonate when another piece is hit, adding to the voice, for the better when tuned, for the worse when not tuned. Tune your kit.
