Jeff takes us back to the ice age where drums were made of turtle shells that were flipped over, had skin stretched over, and then dried in the sun for tension. We then move forward through history and touch on many of the highlights in the fascinating history of drum tuning.
Jeff also gives us tips and tricks on how to get the sound you want out of your drums in a quick and easy way, without overthinking.
