Bass Drum Detail Structure

The bass drum is a large, two-headed cylindrical drum which stands vertically with the rim of the shallow wooden shell facing the audience. Originally used in military music, the bass drum is played by a pair of drumsticks with a wooden handle and a fairly soft and large knob, mostly made of felt. The bass drum is capable of producing a low and heavy tone without any definite pitch.
