At RTOM we have people from many disciplines including engineering, manufacturing, and science, all working together to improve the way drums are played. All of us are passionate about drums. Our goal is to bring our unique abilities to an area of percussion that has long been overlooked by the drum industry. Practice makes perfect. RTOM makes practice perfect.
RTOM was founded in 1992 by Tom Rogers. His belief in the transformative powers of technology stem, in part, from working with the legendary Dr. Amar Bose while serving in the Navy. This was “an eye opening experience” which lead to RTOM’s philosophy of using engineering principals to improve the way percussion instruments are played. Tom’s passion for learning is heavily engrained in the culture of RTOM and is a major driver of our research.
