Drum #142-32D"African Zebra Wood"
Size: 12 inch diameter head
This is the 32nd drum in my D-series.
The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The inside and outside layers are made from the African Zebra wood and the 2nd,3rd, and 4th layers are made from kiln dried Douglas fir. I was able to get some very striking mirror image patterns by flip flopping the 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. This drum has an Ashiko sound but much more.
