This might've already been discussed ad museum for all I know, but I gotta ask. I was at a gig a couple weekends ago and the head of my 14x18 kick was too resonant. We'd been playing some "intimate" gigs where I was unmiked and needed the resonance. This gig I was being miked and it was causing some issues so I loosened the batter a bit to make the soundman happy. Midway thru the gig, I noticed things felt better with the head a little looser than I usually like it. Thought I'd ask those with more experience where they tend to tension their bass drum batter head. Keep in mind, I'm on a bop kit, which I by default gave it a cranking!
