WELCOME IN THE STUDIO

In this section you can find things that will assist you in your own computer-based musical productions. There's a lot of original Dubroom material which you can use, but also third party material. There's much more than "just" sampled material, as you can find some little pieces of software, presets and other things as well. Everything in this section is, like all stuff in the Dubroom by the way, legal and -a lot of times- absolutely free of charge. Definitely worth a visit, for novice to veteran.

BLAMINACK - HOW TO BUILD A KETE HAND DRUM - PART 14

Now while the skin is still very pliable and soft and wet it is time to begin mounting the drumhead. First I remount the bottom ring, finding the best place around the shell that fits best. Now I realign the bottom ring with the retaining ring and tensioning rods. We want them as straight as possible because if they are off, the effect seems to be magnified when set against the straight joints of the staves. Here is how this looks…

From here I keep each part in the same alignment. Keep all of the parts oriented so that everything lines up nicely. This is also done to flesh ring to find the place that everything is cleanly aligned.

I then wrap the skin around the flesh ring place it inside the retaining ring with the hair side down. (This very important!) You want the hair side facing out. I place the skin and flesh ring inside of the retaining ring between the tensioning rods like this…

Tuck the edges of the skin through the inside of the retaining ring. If you get this too tight the ring will rest too high and will not be comfortable on your hands while playing. I poke the center down to push a nice hollow space like a pocket. This part may take some practice. Remember that you can readjust things while the skin is wet and pliable and the drum has not been tightened much. Keeping the same alignment as before lower the shell into the center of the retaining ring. It should be able to touch the working surface with a little slack for the proper fit. Doing this may require some help because you will not want the tensioning rods to scratch the drum shell, and it will take some help inserting the tensioning rods into the coupling nuts on the bottom ring. All of the rods have to go into the coupling nuts at the same time and it must be evenly so that they do not bind.
