In DBs article, "A look at the audible frequency spectrum," 60Hz-200Hz catches the boom "boom" of tom tom's. What is meant by this and what is the recommended action in this frequency range with regards to toms?

Jun 19, 2010 10:41 pm if you want more boom in your toms, boost (with moderation) between 60 and 200.. remember thats a guideline so yours might be closer to 200 or closer to 60....

if you dont want boomy sounding, cut with moderation at that frequency
im just learning to but thats how i understand it!
Jun 20, 2010 10:10 am yeah the boom is basically the low end kind of power, thast how i think it should be thought of all over the frequency spectrum, as in everything has a different kidn of power. Lower end power is that kind of thud that u can feel in ur chest while higher end power is shimmery and such.

The "action" is more or less just that, how hard do u want the thud to be? if tons, then boost, if its too hard hitting, then cut.

Jun 22, 2010 12:11 pm Now this is just me, but I usually settle my kick around 55-65, end up boosting my floor tom around 80 and my rack toms from 110-150 (bigger to smaller). General area of course but works well for me.

Since using the Evans EC2 heads (metal ring between layers) I have no problems with attack anymore, cut a little midrange and slightly boost the lows.
