Special Mention – a New Drum by Tom Stewart
Size: 10 inch diameter head
Height: 24 inches
Weight: 8.5 pounds
Skin: Pakistan goat skin (spine centered)
Carrying case: Custom Coon Hollow canvas case ($85 extra)
Price: $750 Plus shipping
The drum comes with an information packet, tuning wrench, no-skid floor pad, and a free Conga Joy beginners drum book written by Bill Matthews.
This is the 45th drum in my B-series.
The drum shell is made up of five laminated wood layers. The inside 4 layers are made with kiln dried Douglas fir. The outside finished layer is made with American Black Walnut wood.
The drum is wrench tunable with my own hardware design. I do all of the metal work with the exception of the brass electro-plating in my shop.
The steel anchor band and tuning hooks are electro-plated with polished brass.
The tuning nuts, Thread Caps, and hold-down band are solid brass.
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.
