Hi there everybody. Professional Drum Tech, Drummer, and YouTube Educator, Kenny Sharretts running a blog about drum tuning on the 2019 Elvis Costello/Blondie Summer time Tour with a fast dialogue on adjusting your tuning on your IEM combine, and/or your venue. With some excursions I do the venues are typically related in nature. On an Enviornment tour, you’ll be able to tune for an enviornment, and usually keep at that tuning all the tour. Similar with a shed tour. With this tour, nevertheless, there have been quite a lot of venues from arenas, to sheds, to theaters, which suggests I’ve to accommodate for the venue in my tuning. Furthermore, a few of the sheds we performed had steel roofs that had been nearer to the stage than others. This issue can GREATLY have an effect on the sound of drum set within the In Ear Monitor combine. That is essential as on this tour the ENTIRE band was on IEM’s, and we had 4 very reside vocal mics onstage. Drums love stepping into vocal mics much more than vocalists just like the drums stepping into their mic. LOL! Therefore I’ve to verify my tuning accommodated Mr. Costello’s combine so he can hear his voice clearly, whereas on the similar time getting the drum sound my drummer Pete Thomas desired as nicely. That is along with tuning for the FOH mixer/venue. Whoosh so many parameters to consider.
