How Does a Drum Make a Sound?

Answer

Hitting a drum pushes the drum head down, which gives the drum head potential energy from the hit. The drum head then vibrates continuously, until the energy goes down. The vibration of the drum head produces pressure waves in the surrounding air, which is essentially the sound that the drum produces. The pressure waves describe the sound that is heard, amplitude, that is the harder the hit, the more the drum head flexes, affecting the volume of sound that is heard and higher frequency, which is subject to the tension of the drum head and it affects the pitch of the drum, from the low frequency bass drum to the high frequency snare.

The drum which is a member of the percussion group of musical instruments consists of at least one membrane called a drumhead or drum skin that is stretched over a shell and struck, either directly with the player’s hands, or with a drumstick, to produce sound. Drum normally makes sound when you strike the surface of the drum. The noise travels to our ears and the ear interprets the vibrations.
