    I have so much to learn,but am willing to spend the time. What confuses me is when you ask L.P. they say it should be ok with the stock heads. The sound of a well tuned Timbales is what keeps me on this quest.I bought the bronze ones because I was told that they would have a warmer sound, Is the fact that they are bronze part of the problem. As far as the calf skin where would be a reputable place to start looking, you mentioned Remo Fiber skin do you think( before I spend the money on calf) it would be worth a try to see if it would be better.I cant thank you enough for your input it is so refreshing to talk with someone that has some experience Fred

    To remove use bike tube rubber on the inner rim of the timbales or gel tabs but yes it muffles heads. This will eliminate most of it. Also bare in mind the room you are playing may not have proper acoustics and this will also cause a drum to ring. The best way to eliminate the ring totally is by using real Calf Heads this will give you a true sound but they are expensive and you must take very good care of them. UN tune when not in use and keep in a none humid place. Another concept you can use is Remo fiber skins they are a bit thicker than the ambassadors and muffles the ring also. I also have a set of Remo timbales for sale if interested they have remo heads and they ring a bit in sizes 13/14 that are very good timbales. Again i would recommend put calf heads.

    I have tried different tuning both a 4th and 5th apart and may tuning both high and low still this horrible overtone. I have inspected the head and they appear to be ok not out of round no cracks bearing surface ok. The small one (Hembro?) is much worse the Macho is better but still bad, I have done alot of on line investigating, listened to countless tuning videos, I can never get that sound. I am a conga player but have no experience with synthetic heads and sticks, I am using the out side of the drum and the rim shot is especially bad, anything you can tell me would be much appreciated Thanks so much for your time I realize how hard this is to not hear them, anything that you can do would be great.

    I was trying to buy a drum from Vinny @Vintage drum bug and I asked if he knew anyone that could help me with my Timbales and he said you were the man.They are a Tito Puente bronze 14 and 15 and I cant seam to make them sound like that traditional sound you always hear, I have been trying since Nov. L.P. has not stepped up to the plate and there is no one in Maine that has a clue. I did buy them new, they have L.P. heads, the overtone that come out is really bad they have this annoying ring,and overtone that I cant get rid of.I have tried coated Remo Ambassadors( As per Remo recommendation) tone still there, gel pad dampeners that helps, but mutes the sound End of part 1 Fred
