Abstract (en)

[origin: US6407322B1] Percussions instruments, especially drums, consist of a ring-shaped hollow form covered with hide or a resonant skin on the top and bottom. The skins are arranged in such a way that they can vibrate freely. To do this, a flexible tensioning device is used, whereby the tension of said skins can be adjusted by the percussionist during play. A tubular body integrated into the edge of the support in the form of a closed ring-shaped body is thus provided. Said body can be moved towards or away from the hollow form or the outer wall thereof. The tubular ring rests against the percussive ring on the U-shaped supporting edge like a stop and acts upon the edge of the skin. When the periphery of the tubular hose is modified, the described movement and tensioning of the skin occurs.
