Tom Tom Snare Review

"It's more than skin deep."

Currently drummers are restricted to shaping drum attack through drum head, dampening, & stick selection. When we design your drums, we alter the other three elements of the envelope to "produce" your sound; this approach creates an efficent experience not only the artist but the band & those in the audience.


Simular to how we breakdown a sentence into words & words into letters, we can also break down music into sounds waves. The sound waves are then measured in 4 main sections, commonly referred to as an envelope or A.D.S.R.


When you first strike a drum, the Attack refers to the time it takes for your sound to go from silent to the loudest level.  


The Decay time controls how long it takes for your sound to go from the peak of attack to the sustain level.



Sustain refers to the level during the main sequence of your sound. This is the moment when shell, heads, & hardware are most engaged; drummers often refer to this as tone, color, or timber. 


 Release controls how long it takes your sound to return to silence after the sustain cycle.
