Installing Mesh Drum Heads on Pearl Rhythm Traveler Drum Set
by MILLIE FELTS
We just purchased an Pearl Rythum Traveler drum set for our son.
It came with mufler drum heads.
Where and how do you install the mufflers.
Lucky guy, your son! The black mesh heads are meant for practicing. They output very low volume. All you have to do is loosen the lugs, remove the plastic head, then replace the plastic head with the black mesh head and tighten the lugs.
The mesh heads will need to be tuned just like the regular heads. First, tighten the lugs just enough to get the head wrinkle-free. Then choose one lug and tap the head lightly near the lug. Use the drum key to tighten the lug so that you hear a pitch close to the sound you want.
Then go to the lug that is across from the first one and tighten that one so that the head near that lug matches the first pitch. Repeat this cross pattern until all of the lugs are tightened to the desired pitch.
This will be time consuming at first, but as your son gains experience, it will take less and less time.
When your son begins practicing, he will want to check out our Almost Free Drum Tabs!
