Another drum finished in African Zebra wood. I have built and sold several drums finished in this wood. My customers and myself it seems are attracted to drums finished in this wood. They really are beautiful and this one I think is no exception. The joints on the finished layer are v-grooved giving a nice paneling effect. The drum is fitted with a graceful carrying handle from the same wood. The inside shell layers are made from straight grained Douglas fir. There are five shell layers counting the Zebra wood finish layer making this drum solid in all respects.
The tuning hardware is electro-plated in polished brass with a solid brass hold-down band, tuning nuts and thread protection caps.
The sound qualities are excellent. It has a deep vibrant bass reaching to a high ringing Doumbek sounding rim tone.
