Hey percussion community!

I'm curious to hear about the different ways that everyone muffles and tunes their marching bassdrums.

I've been a bass drummer for 11+ years and teach at a few drum corps. Muffling has always been a pain and I know that I always had questions about how to tune and muffle for indoor versus outdoor, How much foam to use, the best heads to use etc.

you can check out our take on muffling bass drums at but I would love to hear the communities approach! Thanks!
