Diagnosing Common Snare Drum Problems | Season Two, Episode 25
We receive more than a few inquiries every day about how to overcome problems being experienced with tuning snare drums. While we can’t always get to all of them, we assembled this episode to help. Barring any flaws in the equipment itself, there are several causes that have emerged as the most common for snare headache based on what we’ve encountered.
Are there a multitude of other causes? Absolutely! Can we cover them all in one episode? Not a chance. Do we have time to address the issues that every single person comes to us with? Unfortunately, no. But we do have a private message board via our Patreon and would be more than happy to address topics there.
