Do you know what a wing tom is? I've used the term on the Pearl Forum a couple times and every time people have to ask what it is. Surely this isn't an obscure term.

It's a tom that goes to the bar with his buddy, with the understanding that he's just there to help his buddy get banged.

I wonder if they are talking about a gong drum?

I could see how someone would say they are "wing" drums.

I've always known it to mean and used it interchangeably for rack tom. I'm not sure where I first picked it up, probably from my dad who's also a drummer, but plenty of my drumming buddies I've grown up with use the same term.
