• The term "rim shot" is derived from drumming. It comes from striking the rim of a cymbal on edge with a drumstick, as opposed to striking the top of a cymbal with the end of the stick. Drum rolls are frequently used to build up tension before the conclusion of an event. The term may be used when the drummer strikes the rim of the snare drum with the edge of the stick or rests one end of the stick on the skin and strikes the rim with the edge.
