How to Tune and Muffle a Bass / Kick Drum Pt. 1
In this video, I’ll go through my bass/kick drum tuning process for the batter head, as well as various muffling techniques to change the sound of the drum. This video perfect for the fellow educator and/or drummer who might need some guidance with tuning.
