Hi Guys. I can tune my Toms pretty well, but when it comes to my snare i can never get it right. Do you tune the top and bottom heads to the same pitch? What heads do you use? I like Danny Carey's snare sound. Any idea how he tunes his snare? Basically, i'm looking for all the tips i can get!! thanks,
