This is the 7th of my new F-series 13.5 inch diameter drums.
The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The inside four layers are made of straight grained kiln dried Douglas Fir and the outside layer is finished in a beautiful Shedua Hardwood. A graceful laminated carrying handle made from the same wood is fitted to the drum. The outside finish layer has been v-grooved giving it a nice paneling effect.
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 steel tuning hardware is electro-plated with polished brass along 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)
