The True Resonant Quality of 6061 Aluminum: Crystalline Lattice Structures

Gabriel Martinez Technical Bulletin 001 The True Resonant Quality of 6061 Aluminum: Crystalline Lattice Structures   One of the reasons I use Aircraft Grade Aluminum(6061 T6) for the GI Hoop is that of the superior resonant qualities in the material which result in greater drum resonation. This is because of the 6061 T6 atomic structure or the crystalline lattice structures.   Fig. 1: Rendering of the Aluminum Crystalline Lattice Structure Crystalline lattice structures is simply an engineering term for the structure that a material’s atoms take on a molecular level. The aluminum that I used in the GI Hoop has a tempering...
