  1. Great Video..If you do a follow up, please include soundbites from old Salsa songs and help us get the rhythm right.

  2. Wow, thanks for the video Glen. I have always loved the sound of timbales and just added one to my kit this week. I was striking it in the center and was only getting that dead sound, as you called it. After trying some of your techniques from this video, I have that classic timbale sound now.

    One question, I bought a Pearl Primero timbale and it has the same tension rods as my other drums do. I tuned the head to pretty much the exact same level as my snare, which is pretty tight. Is tuning the heads tightly the correct approach when it comes to tuning timbales? Glen or anyone else feel free to comment. Thx!
