Warm sounds usually aren’t shrill or tinny, but instead sound “smooth” to th ear.

A bright snare will have a nice high crack and some good ring.

What noise does a whistle make in words?
As told by L Genzel (a Quoran) that can be considered to be an appropriate answer. In the comic books I’ve read, a whistle noise is usually written as “FWEET!”. I think it sounds like a whistle because of the vowel, ee. The reason a whistle sounds like this is because when the air enters a whistle, it curls around.
What are the parts of a drum set?

- Hardware: Cymbal stands, drum stands, pedals.
Why do drums make sound?
The skin of the drum vibrates and makes the confetti dance. As the air molecules vibrate against each other, sound waves are formed and the sound of the drums can be heard. Hit a drum hard and this makes big vibrations and a loud sound. Hit a drum softly and the vibrations are smaller and the sound not as loud.
