But for the most part the lows vary from 40-300 Hz. Many times toms vibrate with a low rumble while you hit the kick and snare, so boosting this area can fatten up the toms, but can also add rumbling while they arent being played. One way to help avoid this is to apply tissue or gel to the drum, but be careful not to choke it too much. Areas around 4000 Hz to 1 kHz tend to be boxy and can be cut to round the toms out. Much like the kick, areas around 3-8 kHz are the clicky and airy qualities and can help add attack and definition to the toms. should read...
