This YouTube video is all about how to “trim fat” from your kick drums. You will require some knowledge of the use of music equipment for this to even make sense. The video begins by describing the problem which is an overlap of bass due to the fact that the kick’s tail overlaps slightly. And, that the kick is not tuned to the same as the bass which makes the overlapping seem worse. They then begin to explain in a step-by-step manner how to prevent the sounds from overlapping. The instructions then move to how to improve the overall sound. This is all described in the jargon of the industry with which you will need to be familiar to understand…but given you’re reading this on our blog, we’ll assume you are!
