Tenor Drum

Drum Out

The Tenor Drum, also commonly referred to as a Military Drum, has a deep body, with a skin on either end, and no snare. It produces a deep hollow sound, and with the absence of a snare, produces a muffled tone, played either single stroke, or roll. More indicative of martial music, it is also highly effective in the orchestra, with just one example being a somber role as a emotive color in funereal music.
