The Tap Test™

The Tap Test

The Tap Test™ confirms that the collar height is even all around the head. Tuning is fast and easy because you don't have to spend extra time compensating for an uneven head. It also demonstrates that the head is level within the hoop. This also makes tuning easier. The Tap Test™ is the only way to test a drumhead before it goes on the drum. It means that you have a way, at last, to test for tone quality and consistency in drumheads.
