Tension !!!!

Posted: January 12, 2013 in Uncategorized


This is my first blog after New Years and I’m looking forward to 2013. I will be posting more this year and will be checking Facebook more often. I got a new Samsung s3 phone and a tablet so I’m ready to go.

This months topic is about tension. How tight is your bass drum head? I have found in the last couple of years the need to find the perfect tension for my bass drum. In doing this I have also slightly changed the height of the beaters. This then forces me to change the spring tension, which then causes tension and a little frustration in me to get it comfortable to play…..arggg! 

So tension is good, when you get it right. I have found that I can use a little bounce off the BD head with the hard beaters while practicing the  Moeller method with my feet. Check out this vid for a great explanation on how to do it. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSKS9a9NuPc) 

Happy drumming!
