Forskjellen mellom REMO UT (Taiwan) og REMO UA (USA) trommeskinn.

 

De aller fleste trommesett i mellomklassen som har REMO som skinnleverandør, produsert i Kina/Taiwan leveres med REMO UT trommeskinn. Disse leveres med samme type skinn over /under på rack-toms/gulv-toms, og er vanligvis type clear. Forskjellen mellom UT og UA er tykkelsen på Mylar-filmen (8,5 mil vs Eks. 10 mil for Ambassador), og innfesting av mylar-filmen til alu hoopen gjøres annerledes. UT-skinn har en "låst" "closed crimp channel" med stålkjerne som gir en tyngre, mer vibrasjonsfri konstruksjon en REMO UA som har "open channel crimp" for nettopp å kunne vibrere friere og skape god relasjon mellom over/underskinn.

 

Vår erfaring er at UT-skinnene fungerer fint som underskinn; men for å få ut trommens fulle potensiale anbefaler vi ALLTID å bytte slagskinnet til f.eks REMO sine USA produserte skinn, eller Evans USA skinn. Ved å bytte ut slagskinnene som følger med Pearl Decade/Yamaha Stage Custom og mange flere brands.., har du nå ett ekstra sett underskinn som kan brukes når du har spilt på trommene en stund..

Tuning a complete drumset is a

 Trommestikker



 
 

Trommestikker er arbeidsredskapet til trommeslagere og de fleste som har
spilt en stund har sine helt personlige preferanser når det gjelder stikkevalg.
Mange trommeslagere har sin
personlige favoritt og bruker disse
uansett musikkstil, mens andre velger
stikker etter dagsform, s
pillestil og
økonomi.

Cymbaler




En cymbal kan ikke stemmes eller justeres som en tromme, derfor er valg av riktig cymbal helt avgjørende. I tillegg er utvalget enormt både i størrelser, tykkelser, legeringer og kvalitet; noe som gjør valget ekstra utfordrende.

 


Istanbul Mehmet Cymbaler


Istanbul ble startet av cymbalsmedene
Mehmet Tamdeger og Agop Tomurcuk
i 1980, og navnet Istanbul Cymbals var inspirert av byen som hadde blitt metropol overdensleder
for instrumentet.

 


Stemmetips

I motsetning til piano og gitarer kan trommer stemmes på den måten du selv synes er best. Allikevel, for å få dem til å låte best er det noen råd en bør følge.

 

What is a Resonant Drumhead?

The resonant drumhead is the bottom drumhead on each of your drums… It’s the drumhead you don’t hit, and it’s the opposite of the batter head (which is the one you do hit).

What is a Resonant Drumhead
Resonant drumheads, shown here.

The resonant head resonates when the batter head is hit: It vibrates to give the drum more sustain and tone, and it also helps with volume and projection.

Your resonant head has a big influence on your drum’s overall sound, and part of its job is to act like an equalizer for the drum: Different resonant head types and tunings will bring out different frequencies in the overall drum sound.

You can quickly hear how your resonant head influences your drum sound by muting or removing it:

  • Hit your tom batter head while your hand covers the tom’s resonant head, then try it again without your hand choking the drum.
  • Take off the resonant head and things will sound very different.
  • As you’re putting the resonant head back on, listen to how the sound changes as you tune it from low, to medium, to higher tension.

When you do these tests, you should notice how your drum sound big, full, and rings out nicely when the resonant head is free to vibrate properly.

Note: Tuning plays an important role here, and we’ve got more information on that later.

Freedom to resonate is a very important thing for your resonant drumheads, and it’s critical that they stay in very good condition to be able to do so.

This brings us to the next important point:

The resonant drumhead is the one that you don’t hit… In fact, it’s important not to hit it.

Why Shouldn’t I Hit My Resonant Drumheads?

Because you’ll affect their ability to resonate properly.

Floor Tom - Vibrations from Batter to Resonant Head

Damaging your resonant heads (with stick marks, dents, tape reside, etc.) will make them more difficult to tune, and will alter their sound.

You’ll end up with less sustain, tuning issues, and drums that can sound dull and lifeless.

Resonant heads need to be in like-new shape to vibrate to their full potential. A light tap while tuning is okay, but never play them like you’d play a batter drumhead.

Resonant heads will also naturally wear out over time, even if you don’t hit them. This is because they’re constantly being “hit” by vibrations from the batter head… This slowly affects them, meaning they won’t perform as well as they should. More on this soon!

Can I Use a Batter Drumhead as a Resonant Head?

Yes, for toms and bass drums.
Although some are much better than others…

For snare drums, definitely not (want to know why? see our free guide to resonant snare heads). Since snare drums are a very different story, they won’t be covered in this article. Check the link above for all of the essential information on resonant snare heads.

Almost all of the tom and bass resonant drumheads we’ll cover below are also batter heads – in most cases they can be used as either. Generally though, you’ll want to avoid resonant drumheads that are extremely thick and/or extremely dampened.

So yes, you can definitely use batter heads on the resonant side, but there’s a limit to how thick or dampened they can be (especially on smaller drums). Further down the page, we’ll cover a lot more on this. In most cases, thin or medium-weight batter heads are the standard resonant head choice.

What’s The Best Resonant Drumhead?

That’s a terrible question!

Here’s why:

Don’t believe anyone that simply says “this is the best resonant drumhead” without telling you what sound and situation it’s best for. It depends on personal taste, and the sound you want.

Evans Calftone DrumheadIt’s like asking “what’s the best food” – it all comes down to taste, and you’ll get different answers from everyone you ask.

So let’s get a little more focused:

There are some quick questions you can ask yourself you find the best resonant drumhead for you:

Choosing the best resonant drumhead:
How much sustain (ringing) do you want in your drums?

The sustain you can achieve from resonant drumheads follows an inverse U-shape based on thickness. That means that very thin and very thick heads won’t hold their sustain as much as moderately thick heads:

Thin resonant heads won’t ring out as much. The thin material stops vibrating quicker, cutting the sustain.

Aquarian Hi-Frequency DrumheadModerately thick resonant heads are best for a lot of sustain. They’re thick enough to hold a strong sustain, but not so thick that they choke it.

Very thick resonant heads are harder to fully activate. Thick material takes a lot more force to get a really strong sustain, and can “choke” itself more easily due to the extra weight. If you’re a hard hitter, thick drumheads can have the potential to produce a big sustain, but you’ll have to hit them like you really mean it.

Choosing the best resonant drumhead:
Do you want a bright, warm, or in-between (balanced) drum sound?

Remo Diplomat Clear DrumheadThinner resonant drumheads are best for a brighter (higher-pitched) overall sound.

Medium-weight resonant heads are a nice middle ground with good balance across all frequencies.

Thicker resonant drumheads are best for a warmer (darker) sound. Coated drumheads will also put more focus on warmer tones.

In general, the thicker the drumhead, the more emphasis you’ll have on the midrange and lower frequencies.

Choosing the best resonant drumhead:
Do you want drums focused on one pitch, or more complex tones?

For more focus, choose thicker or coated resonant drumheads, or heads with built-in dampening (like the Evans EC Tom Reso). These reduce overtones, producing a more focused sound.

Alternatively, choose thin or clear resonant drumheads without built-in dampening for more complex tones. Tune them right, and theses overtones can sound very musical.

Keep in mind that your batter head type and tuning will also contribute a lot to the your drum’s focus.

Tip: If you’re just starting out and have no idea which resonant drumheads to buy, go for general-purpose heads that will give you versatility: 10 mil (medium-weight) resonant drumheads with no built-in dampening are a great choice here. They have a balanced sound, they’re usable across almost all styles of music, and they have a fairly strong sustain.
