    Teacher's performance bits for reference


    Wood the drum shells are made from plays vital in the type of sound it will produce. Like Maple produces a warm, resonant sound, birch produces a slightly more aggressive sound with less resonance, mahogany and oak produce louder drums. The layers of wood/piles also create a difference, i.e., drums are more resonant if piles are thin, as they will ring more after being struck.
