Drum #140-21F"Alowood/Silver Walnut"
This is the 21th drum in my F-series.
The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The inside and outside layers are made from the Alowood/Silver Walnut and the 2nd,3rd, and 4th layers are made from kiln dried Douglas fir. The Alowood/ Silver Walnut is pressure dyed tree farm wood with nice swirling grain patterns. I was able to get some nice mirror image patterns by alternating the laminates.
The drum is fitted with a laminated handle from the same wood along with some Spanish Purple Heart laminates.
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 with a powerful base, great tones, slaps and high ringing rim shots.
