How does Shell depth change pitch?
I am scrapping together a few kits and plan to shorten the depth of a few shells to get different sounds from similar diameter drums. What can I expect the "shorter" toms to sound like compared to the regular depth toms? Will the pitch change, or will it only effect the sustain? I want to know what to expect, and if it is worth the effort to cut down the shells and re edge the bottom bearing before I invest too much time. Thoughts?
