I like to call this a "Mother Rhythm Drum".
The drum is finished in Spanish Purple Heart wood. There are four inlay panels of the Navajo Corn Maiden. The Corn Maidens are made with a combination of Bass wood and Spanish Purple Heart wood. The joints and panel areas around the Corn Maidens are filled with a yellow custom dyed wood filler. The tuning hardware is electro-plated in polished brass.
This drum is exceptionally well made. It is beautiful to look at and has great sound qualities.
Part of the price for this drum is to replace several bandsaw blades. Spanish Purple Heart is like iron to work with.
