How is the tenor drum played?

The Scottish tenor drum is a musical instrument used within Scottish pipe bands. It is a double-headed membranophone that is held vertically with one head up, one head down, and played with soft mallets on the top head only. It is similar to the more common marching band style tenor drum.

How high should tenor drums be?

The drums themselves should be at or just below the waist. Your wrists shouldn’t have to bend much to be in playing position. Sometimes drumlines will try to match drum heights across the lines, which I disagree with in high schools especially, as height differences are greatly exaggerated at that age.

How often do drummers break sticks?

If you’re hoping for a cut and dry answer to how often your drum sticks should be replaced, there isn’t one. Some drummers replace their drum sticks once a week, while others can go for months without replacing. In most cases, drummers use their drum sticks until they break or splinter.

Do you need special drumsticks for electronic drums?

For the electronic drums, you should use nylon-tipped drumsticks. These heads are delicate and costlier than the sticks. Make sure the drum heads are tough and durable so they can last longer. This is why you should invest in drumsticks with nylon tips, even if your regular drums use wooden sticks.

Why do my drumsticks keep breaking?

If you have not spent time developing your technique, then you are more likely to break sticks. This is true regardless of which brand of sticks you use or the quality of the design and build. If you are holding your drum sticks too tight (using the so-called death grip), you will break them often.
