Drum Description:

This is the 38th drum in my B-series.

The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The inside and outside layers are Lacewood and sandwiched between are three layers of 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 with a powerful base, great tones, slaps and high ringing rim shots. The drum sounds are similar to and African Ashiko but much more.
