drum tuningDrum tuning can be a complex process that requires patience and dedication. As you gain experience, you’ll learn how to refine your drum sound. I’ve been a drummer for 10 years, and I still find it challenging to achieve the precise sound I want. Getting the right sound for your drums enhances your playing experience and makes it more enjoyable. Proper drum maintenance is essential for easy tuning.

Schecter Guitars

schecter guitarsSchecter Guitars: High-End Quality and Rarity

Schecter guitars are currently known as high-end quality instruments that are sleek and beautiful, with a price to match. Best recognized for their custom-made guitars, which can only be purchased through authorized dealers with restrictions, Schecter Guitars have gained a reputation as a rare breed – and they are both rare and popular.

Schecter Guitars History

Although relatively new and with a somewhat obscure past, Schecter guitars were founded by David Schecter in 1976. Located in Van Nuys, California, the now-celebrity-endorsed company began by producing replacement parts for Gibson and Fender guitars, such as brass pickguards and innovative tapped pickups. Tapped pickups are a great addition to a guitar, as they enable a double coil pickup in a single coil package, allowing you to switch the second single coil pickup on and off to create the enticing humbucker sound.

If you’re considering purchasing a drum set, here are some tips for buying a quality used set. Following these suggestions will help ensure you don’t waste your money.

  1. Take your time: Be patient when choosing a drum set. Carefully assess the drums’ overall condition, checking the skins for rips or tears, especially on the snare drum. Also, inspect the snare release to ensure it functions properly – it should release and reapply quickly and smoothly.
  2. Check the snare sound: When the snare is released, there should be no buzzing from the snare drum. It should sound like a tom-tom.
  3. Inspect the drum shells: Ask if you can remove a head to examine the inside of the drum. Look for the material the drum shell is made of – Maple or Birch wood shells are heavier and of higher quality than plywood or plastic shells.
  4. Examine the drum hardware: Check the drum lugs (tensioners) by tightening each one with a drum key to ensure they turn smoothly and aren’t rusted. Make sure the drum lugs are secure, and tighten them with a spanner if necessary.
  5. Assess additional hardware: Inspect
