  • Need help tuning 8 tom Fiberglass kit

    I have an early 80’s Pearl Fiberglass kit consisting of 6”, 8”, 10”, and 12” concert toms, plus 13” and 14” rack toms, plus 16” and 18” floor toms (22” kick).
    I play classic rock.

    I need recommendations as to what note or pitch (in Hz) to tune all those toms to. There would be top and bottom pitch for the double headed toms to get the desired note. I use a Tune-bot studio to dial in the pitch.

    I am not interested in tuning theory, just the notes and a possible explanation for the intervals used.

    Thanks in advance!

      It will accommodate that many Toms except the 6 inch tom which would be a third octave A #.
