Bearing Edge

The edge of the drum shell, upon which the drumhead rests. The bearing edge may be shaped to a wedge to the outside of the shell or to a centered point, and may be slightly rounded — the shape and location of the bearing edge determines where and how the drumhead breaks over and contacts the shell. For proper tuning, it is essential that the bearing edge be straight and level.
