320/362 both Mark Schulman's settings

284/400
240/386
287/340
320/385 Steve Smith's setting
Interestingly, all these tunings create a fundamental from a low of about 3F# (185hz) to a high of about 3G# (207) with varying amounts of resonance and head feel.

Which has pretty much been my observations. A 3F# 185hz tuning is a nice fat snare, a 3G 196hz is a nice medium sound with good pop and some meat, and a 3G# 207hz is a great crack/pop higher tuning.

If you want the really high reggae type crack, go higher than 207hz. If you want a super low fat sound, go lower than 185hz.

I do wish tune-bot would provide a snare calculator. Their calculator only does toms and they give snare tunings in their guide and there are also artists tunings with snare information.

Hi Gabo, the phone app has a snare calculator. Sounds like it's just what you're looking for.
yea that phone app calculator isn't really a calculator. Or at least it's not on an android. You just pick a note to tune too and it gives you one top/bottom tuning for that one fundamental. Not like the tom calc where you can select many different options with various resonances and tunings.

Does Anyone know John Bonhams tuning numbers for the 70s Supraphonic LM402 14x6.5? I'm using Remo Emperor Coated/Ambassador Clear bottom

One guys take on it on YouTube . I find a fundamental of 196 HZ is pretty close to my ears.
