    Default Concert Tom Versatility

    Are concert toms suitable for various styles other than pop and rock? Jazz for instance?
    I am wondering about '70s 3-ply Slingerlands.

    I think you can use whatever you'd like to but I believe typically not really for jazz. Concert toms are a little louder with projection but have a quick decay. I guess a little more wet or thuddy sounding than a warm tone that a reso head can help give.
    It’s all in the ear of the beholder.

    Hi Paul and welcome to our drumchat family! You could use them for some types of jazz like progressive jazz or fusion. I don't think they would fit in with standard swing or bebop.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.
