Traditional Irish Music
Today i got my new drum from Seamus, i had one before but was so intrigued by his 'new' 1-screw tuning system, i had to try one :)
It arrived today, and i have barely had time to play it seriously yet (Official premiere will be Kalmar next weekend at Eamonn O'Reilly's live recording gig) but already "raw" out of the box it plays every bit as well as the old one, perhaps with a little brighter sound and a bit more attack. The one screw tensioner is brilliant, as opposed to fiddling with 8 internal hex-head screws, trying to turn them all an equal amount.
