All Playing Examples From The How To Tune and Muffle Your Bass / Kick Drum Series

After watching the how to tune and muffle your bass / kick drum series, you might be curious as to how the drum sounds with a ported vs non-ported front head. Rather than switching back and forth between the two videos, I decided to create this vid showcasing all playing examples from both vids!

Interested in learning how to tune your batter and reso heads?
