Our Concert Toms are available in sizes from 8 to 24 inches in diameter and provide a huge range of pitches and timbres. We offer two types of Concert Toms: double-headed walnut/maple toms for a full and resonant sound and single-headed birch toms which cut through and are easy to tune to specific pitches. In the orchestra, sets of four, six or eight drums are usually used.
To meet the high acoustic requirements in the orchestra, we use only the best woods for our Concert Toms. The 5,6mm thick shells for the double-headed toms are a seven-ply walnut/maple hybrid construction with two plies of walnut inside and outside and a three-ply maple core. For the single-headed toms we use seven plies of birch with a total thickness of 5,8mm. 45 degree bearing edges ensure a focused sound with a clear tonality.
Acoustic musical instruments with natural wood surfaces have a centuries-old tradition and are still as popular as ever. Our birch and walnut finishes provide a timeless and beautiful aesthetic that complements classic orchestral instruments. The shiny chrome hoops, tension lugs and mounting brackets perfectly suit the matte satin finishes, enhancing the vibrant pattern of the wood.
