Default Re: Beater striking position

Just like your snare and toms, with the same velocity strike, you'll get the loudest, fullest, and lowest pitched sound in the center. As you move towards the edge, the sound will thin out, get a little quieter, and raise in pitch a bit. Rebound is least in the center and increases a bit towards the edges.
