Question about Mid East Madal Strap Tension Drum
So I bought a madal the other day and now when I strike the lower head it has this buzz that comes along with the tone.... i've tried tuning it but i dont know what else to do.
I just found this website, so sorry for the delay. sometimes the heads (especially plastic or composite) come partially unrolled from the rim to which they are attached. since by tuning it, you are pulling the head tighter only because it's firmly attached to the rim, if the rim is loose at even a little spot, that place will sound funny. you might get a crackle or buzz where the fit just isn't right. plus, in this case, if you keep tightening the rest of the head, this portion will just warp or fold since it's not tight enough to lay flat and stretch, which will just increase your noise.
Now, if the head's leather, the buzz might be a fly trapped inside. no really, check for splinters or separations on the rim of the body which the head is stretched over. if there is a split in the actual drum body, you'll hear it more when the head next to it is vibrating.
