Stave drum shells are made from blocks of solid wood with vertical grain orientation and adjoined via precisely cut miter joints. The angular structure is then lathed into a smooth cylindrical shape. The resulting sound is revealing & straight-forwardly honest, with excellent sensitivity and dynamic capabilities. We offer two options for this series:
Purely-Resonant™ shells feature classic straight-wall construction, with a thickness of 3/8" - 1/2" depending on the drum type and desired tone. This traditional design offers excellent sensitivity, dynamics, and a focused timbre.
Ultra-Resonant™ shells are milled thinner on the interior, between 1/4" - 3/8". This design offers added resonance and a more complex set of overtones. Reinforcement rings are integrated into the shell to ensure lasting integrity.
