Trying to get a nice low rumble sound from my 16" Ayotte tom. Swore I could get this sound before. There is an Ambassador Clear batter on the resonant side and I have tried Aquarian Texture Coated and currently have an Aquarian Studio X on the batter side. I had Evans EC1's on it that I really liked but they have stopped making them. All I can find is the EC2 which is too dead and plasticy sounding for me. It is just sounding off. I have been trying same tuning top and bottom although I usually tune the bottom just slightly higher. I have gone really low and higher than I would like just trying to get a good clear tone out of it. I haven't really had this problem before. Some of it might be my new Jenkins Martin 16" you can almost just set a head on it and it sounds great. I am wanting to take the Ayottes out for some gigs but need to get this 16 sounding good before I do. Any ideas?
