drum tuner EZ
Use common sense while tensioning drum heads and keep in mind not to over-tension your drum heads because they may snap.
The lug pitch of a tightly-cranked 14" snare drum resonant head, is typically somewhere in the range of 400 Hz to 450 Hz.
You could choke your snare sound by tuning your resonant head too tight.
Most 14" snare drum heads will give a good snare wire response already when tuned into the range of 360-400 Hz.
(Balance the strainer tension to the tuning of the heads so you don't choke the head with the strainer itself.)
When a 14" snare drum's resonant head is tuned beyond 450 Hz it tends to risk snapping.
However, smaller diameter or table-top tight-cranked snare drum resonant heads could equally well have lug pitches exceeding the app's upper pitch detection limit of 450 Hz.
For example, if you feel your snare drum resonant head is really, really tight, but the app shows a 'low' or 'normal' pitch, then the real-life pitch of that drum head may be already well above the app's pitch detection range limit of 450 Hz.
If this is the case, you may see the app's readings go berzerk, or display incorrect values, or normal values. Respect the tensioning limits of your drum heads: do not over-tighten your drum head, as it may snap!
If you tighten your snare drum's resonant head above the pitch detection range's upper limit, and you feel the app readings can't follow anymore, we strongly advise you to tune 'old-school', by ear and to carefully avoid tensioning your drum head too tight.
Drums are versatile instruments and mastering drum tuning takes time.
It takes time to practice and learn the skill.
Be patient and grant yourself the opportunity to learn and discover, to make mistakes, and to practice the handling itself.
When tensioning its drum heads, a drum's tone changes.
Tweak the tension of the drumheads, listen to your drum's sound at different tensions, tweak again...
That way, you can develop insight & understanding, build tuning experience, and gain 'sound awareness.'
Feel free to experiment & explore the drum's behavior at various head tensions! Tune for your musical needs. Whether a particular sound or tuning is useful or not, depends on the context it is used. Keep an open ear & mind when getting acquainted with your drum's tuning & sound potential over its entire tensioning range.
drum tuner EZ is a tool to help you with clearing your drum heads, but it also matters to which tonal spot you clear them to give you sound A or B.
By trial & error, and methodical exploring, you'll grasp which changes produce sound A or B.
That way, you can quickly tension the heads to get to sound A or B and then use the app to clear the drum heads at their tonal spots.
Below are a few things that are handy to know...
For example, for a typical blues/rock/pop/fusion all-around tuning style for your toms: tune the (largest) floor tom as low as you want it to sound. (Perhaps for middle to pretty low tunings, tension the batter closer towards 'slack' and the reso towards 'choked' to get a more impressive growling floor tom sound. Alternatively, tension the heads closer together to remove those decay-dramatics and get faster stick rebound, while staying at the same middle-low to pretty-low tone.)
Next, tune the smallest tom as high as you like it to be. (Doing so, perhaps, tune the batter head a tad bit loser, thus lower in pitch, than the resonant head to accommodate the above genres' typical approach. Nonetheless, feel free to explore different approaches. Your musical needs determine what's desirable as an approach.)
Now listen to both drums' tones. Check how 'low' your floor tom is tuned and how 'high' your smallest diameter tom is tuned.
Form an idea of their proportional tonal spacing.
That total distance between both drums is the gap where the other toms will fit in.
Tune-up the other drums and try to fit their tone proportionally in between your smallest tom and your (largest) floor tom, so that you get a nice even tonal spacing between them and that they fill the gap nicely.
(Perhaps an equidistant tonal spacing between the drums works well in situations where you need balanced, and gradually decaying fills. Still, also here, it is your musical needs that determine what's desirable.)
Your musical needs determine whether this accounts for or not, but for the sake of tonal contrast, it may not be useful to have a floor tom tuned too close to the tone of your kick drum itself.
For the kick drum's tuning, perhaps try to get a similar tonal spacing as between the toms.
Tune the tone of the kick drum low enough below the tone of the (largest) floor tom so that you can still have contrasted dynamics when you play. (For the above genres, overall, you can keep the batter head of the kick drum fairly slack, while getting a bit more tension on the resonant head, to stimulate beater rebound and projection.)
The snare is a realm on its own.
You could tune your snare drum in tonal proportion to the rest of the kit, or not.
With the strainer engaged, it creates a much-contrasted blast with very particular dynamics, so if you tune your snare drum into your playing comfort zone, regardless of the tuning of the toms, it won't easily mess up the balance of your drum kit. It often works equally well, when your snare drum's tone just sits where you want it to sit as an individual instrument, as long as the rest of the kit is nicely balanced for your musical needs.
