    Matt, you’re gonna love this one. Best of the bunch. Dry, but without losing any of the shell vibrancy. It’s superb. I wouldn’t change a thing but I do look forward to seeing your modifications.

    So sorry for your losses. Drumming can be cathartic. It’s always there for us.

    Tried to take a pic of the inner shell, but there was too much reflection off the reso head to see it well. Oh, and nothing is out of round. What appears to be more space between shell and hoop is an...

    I wouldn’t have taken the risk of drilling through that shell. Glad to hear that it was a success. Beautiful drums.

    Will take a pic in a few days. The builder describes pear wood as being super dense, but the drum is especially light. It will make for an awesome pop, funk or R&B drum.

    Fell off the wagon again, and this showed up: Evetts spotted gum ply 7x14. Iím cognizant of new acquisition bias, but this sounds as good as any wood snare that I own.

    Had the folks at DrumArt do it. Their new design program on their website is pretty easy to use. When blown up, the image lost a bit of its sharpness, but I’m very happy with the result.
