Drum #108-8F"Ohio Wild Cherry"
This is the 8th drum in my F-series 13.5 inch drumhead diameter drums.
The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The outside layer is made from some very special old growth wild cherry wood. This wood came from the farm I was raised on near Farmington, Ohio ("sacred wood").
The outside layer laminates were flip-flopped to give some pleasing mirror images of the wood grains.
The four inside layers are made from kiln dried Douglas fir wood.
The steel anchor band and tuning hooks were electro-plated with polished brass.
The tuning nuts, Thread Caps, and hold-down band are solid brass.
I form every thing in my shop except the electroplating.
The sound qualities are super. A rich and deep sounding bass, wonderful tones, slaps, and high ringing rim shots.
