    Have a listen to a pro drummer playing - I bet you'll be able to pick out the relative intervals between his individual drums.
    No point at the moment, my kit's got a full set of pads on . I live near to a graveyard so I can't have them off. I couldn't tune proporally my kit if I wanted to! I can only get it so the high tom is higher than the medium tom and the floor tom is lower than the medium tom.

    .......... ......... that's gotta be one of the CLASSIEST comments i've seen since i've been on this board. Damn i can't stop laughing. You've made my day!!!

    Ok if i can stop laughing enough - i can tell you that the general rule of thumb is that the MORE toms you have - the closer the relative tuning should be. If you only have two bass-drum mounted toms and one floor tom - then the tuning gap can be relatively wide.

    I promise not to make any cheesy comments about your quote.



































    ................................ I couldn't resist it.
    You could always try "ghosting" a few patterns
    Or play dead quiet
    Or buy some new "Styx"
    Or Paiste a notice in the graveyard
    ........................i must get a GRIP!!!

    I am disappointed in the lack of trumpet players here :'( !

    Please may I join your society?!

    I play the trumpet and flugel, have grade 7 but taking grade 8 .

    Just out of interest, Drogue - how do you manage to play the sax and trumpet... doesn't your embouchure get messed up?

    I think some people have the ability to switch embouchures

    In any case it's probably worse for someone who plays trumpet & tuba, because saxophone is a completely different style (I don't think it tires the lips so much). But I don't know, I've never played a woodwind instrument... except recorder
