    Default Correlation between low/mid/high Snare Tuning and Fundamental Frequencies

    I often see videos with snare drums tuned at various pitches described as low,medium, high etc.
    How do these terms relate to fundamental frequencies or notes.
    e,g, would "high" tuning be 3A or A#.

    I tune my snare to 228 which is pretty close to G#.. I would say it is medium.
    I'm just looking for ranges here...if anyone can help

    I’m not where that technically is in my drums, but I will say for the most part there are certain pitches in which the drums sit better than others. The better drums usually have at least 3, but in the case of my Ludwig Actolyte, only one.
