This is the sixth of my new F-series 13.5 inch diameter drums.
The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The inside and outside layers are finished in a very special old growth wild cherry wood. A graceful laminated carrying handle made from the same cherry wood is fitted to the drum. This wood came from a small farm I was raised on in north eastern Ohio.
The drum has been given a sealer coat, an exterior spar varnish coat, and topped with a hand rubbed English wax coat. This process really brought out the beauty and depth of this fine wood.
The tuning hardware is electro-plated with polished brass with a solid brass hold-down band, tuning nuts and thread protection caps.
The sound qualities are excellent. It has great tones, slaps, and a deep vibrant bass. The bass sound is slightly higher then the large 15" inch E-series drums. (Click "Hear the Drums" link on the home page)
