    It is called JAW tuning. Just above wrinkle.

    It is... all the more reason to get a second floor tom (or at least a 13" tom, because that will have the mahogany interior). If I ever got a Reference/Reference Pure kit, it would have 13/16f/18f/22, so all the interiors would be mahogany.

    Well, you might be a lousy photographer but you sure know how to pick out drums! As for this "hand-tuning" concept, what do you say we just share the copyright and all the millions of dollars in royalties!

    I have a lot of fun with tuning. I can literally spend hours dinking around with my drums trying different tunings, heads and configurations. I don't like to brag but... OK I do like to brag... I can almost get my entire kit tuned just by feel, without even a single tap or a drum tuner. (almost)

    Thanks for posting your kit on this forum. Hang around and don't be a stranger.

    aw yeah!!!
    everything about this is awesome. good sizes and you should get plenty of low end from the floor tom with careful tuning. my 16x16 has almost too much boom in some situations. congrats
