This customer was looking to round out the low end of their 8-10-12-13 Academy Concert Toms. Keeping a single-headed design for consistent sound, these “squared” floor toms will do just the trick! 16x16, 18x18; plied maple; satin wax.
Built to order: these 3 drums feature equal depths with timbale-esque tones and grooves in mind! 6½x10, 6½x11, 6½x12; plied maple; satin wax.
Yet another approach: square Concert Toms. That is, same depth x diameter (no, the shells aren't square…) 8x8, 10x10, 12x12, 13x13; plied maple; satin wax.
You can order your Academy Concert Toms in Natural Maple, Light Brown, or Earth Brown. Scott wanted his LARGE EIGHT drums in Light Brown. 8x8, 9x10, 10x12, 11x13, 12x14, 13x15, 14x16, 15x18; plied maple; satin wax.
I asked Jason about creating a drum that matched the look of my kit, and provides a deep, resonant boom that could approximate an Odaiko/Taiko drum sound in my acoustic kit, without the weight, space and expense of the real thing. We discussed shell diameter, thickness and depth, kit placement, and heads selection to arrive at the design that made most sense.
Yeah, I bet those Thunderbirds will be able to THUNDER with these great maple concert toms! 6x6, 7x8, 8x10, 9x12, 11x13, 12x14, 13x15, 14x16; plied maple; satin wax.
Here's another idea: set up your concert toms on stands like marching quads! For the Tonganoxie Chieftains, it works nicely for rehearsals and cheering on the team in the gym. Go Chieftains! 9x10, 10x12, 11x13, 12x14; plied maple; satin wax.
It is SO FUN to work with clients to get things just how they want them! The fine folks at a music studio in our great nation's capital wanted a special set of toms featuring their "4 Elements" iconography emblazoned like our branded logos, as well a specialized "ombré" effect with the colors shifting darker from one drum to the next. Cool project! 6x6, 7x8, 8x10, 9x12, 11x13, 12x14, 13x15, 14x16, 10x18, 10x20; plied maple; satin wax.
Look again. What if you didn't want your set of toms to start with such a small target (6")? Instead of 6" - 16", this set of 8 Concert Toms rocks in at 8" - 18". Also, the first 4 toms' depths are an inch deeper than our standard set of 8, and the brackets are a touch beefier to handle that 18". -- BOOM! 8x8, 9x10, 10x12, 11x13, 12x14, 13x15, 14x16, 15x18; plied maple; satin wax.
