There is also the possibility that sound waves themselves are in some way affected by the variances in humidity and ambient temperature of the surrounding air. But whether that is noticeable by our ears is something else.


The humidity does not have a great effect on particle transport; however, whether or not it is raining does (and we don't tend to play our drums in the rain, I prefer mine dry personally). So I presume that humidity alone has little effect on sound. That said, the temperature of the medium greatly effects the speed of sound and therefore in extremes may make a noticeable difference.

I would suggest that cymbals are less effected by a change in temperature because they are a dense solid. However, a drum has the cavity which will be influenced by temperature and the synthetic material that the skin is made from will also be somewhat sensitive to temperature (a change in temperature likely will lead to a change in surface tension)-- and perhaps the material may also be sensitive to moisture, although I doubt it at any reasonable levels.

That is my speculation anyway.



Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once
