I saw Muse playing UD on 'Later with Jools Holand' and he just used a really tiny kit (like a children's kit or something) not an electronic one.

Yeah, maybe it was Jonathan Ross, not Later with Jools Holand, it was a while ago...

You don't normally tune a kit to a note, just a sound you like (apart from being very difficult, it can mess up the rest of the band).

As far as I know, Dom doesn't tune to notes, you'll just have to play around until you find a sound you like/that sounds like Dom's.

yeah, everyone told me that, I'm desperate already to tune my drums correctly, so perhaps someone could help me with note tuning..
and since I'd like to start practicing by covering muse, I need Dom to tune my drums (or just the tuning if anyone know)

The way I was taught to tune a drum was to get the head on and tightened just so that there are no crinkles, then use 1/2 or 1/4 turns on all the lug nuts (going one-opposite, two right-opposite, two right-opposite, etc.), occasionally going round the very edge flicking or very gently tapping with a stick to make sure the entire drum sounds the same. Every now and then hit (as you normally would hit a drum) the centre to see if you have reached a sound you like. If you use e/o-rings or moongel/gorilla snot, etc. get it to roughly the right sound then fine tune it once you have put it on.

I've heard that some people tune it very tight, then down-tune, but this is bad for the heads, so I wouldn't recommend it.

Now, this is a very time-consuming activity as it is and trying to get an actual note takes even longer. Also, you'll probably need perfect-pitch (a natural ability to tell what any note is just be listening to it -- you have to be born with it, unless you've spent your life working with music) as I don't think any guitar tune will work, what with the attack of the heads, the sustain, etc.

Finally, each drum will have natural tone were it sounds loudest (and usually best), but this requires very careful tuning of both the top and bottom heads. In case you want to know, this tone is when the drum shell vibrates at its natural frequency.

So, will you can tune a drum to a note, its really not worth it. (It also messes up you're band mates.)

As for tuning your kit like Dom's, you'll just have to listen to Muse songs (may I recommend Map of the Problematique?) and try to get your kit sound like his.

Does anybody know which lead crash cymbal does dom use? (eg,when he plays plug in baby on the crash or supermassive black hole verse). I think that it is the A Custom Crash 18" , but I'm not quite sure

I've tried anything, almost, is it a problem if I'm using reso-like head as my batter? (freebies, haven't got anything better) maybe that's the problem, my $200 drums + o ring sounds better than $1000 -_-

Apparently there are loads of drummers who will tune their entire kit to the key of each song (for recording).

Personally I cba when all i'm going to do is suck all the mids out in the mix. Maybe if I had some nice drums i'd bother!

I was just watching HAARP and noticed that for 'Unintended' Dom isn't using the Clear Tama Drum set, instead, he is using a gold sparkle Gretsch kit. Is this a stuff up in the editing (taking Unintended from the other night which wasn't filmed?) or did he actually change drum sets for the one song.
