Drum Description:

This is the 44th drum in my B-series.

The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The inside and outside layers are made with Poplar wood. The outside finished layer has six inlaid Spanish Purple Heart hearts. Sandwiched in the middle are three layers of kiln dried Douglas fir layers

The drum is wrench tunable with my own hardware design.

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 do all the metal work except the electro-plating.

The sound qualities are super with, a powerful bass, great tones, slaps, and high ringing rim shots.  The sounds are similar to an African Ashiko drum but much more.
