I have a 16" Yamaha Live Custom tom that I'm using as a bass drum. I'm generally playing some softer jazz with it.
My question is about suggested muffling for the drum. I have Powerstroke 3 heads (coated batter, clear display), and am using a Vater bomber beater. It has a very warm tone, but just a tad too much resonance.... even with the powerstrokes and their built-in muffling.
Any of my previous solutions would likely kill the warmth of the drum. Would you have any very subtle recommendations to offer?
