Even though I am a cabinetmaker by trade, I have been a drummer for the past 30 years, and my passion was always to create my very own drums. These are stave or segment construction drums, the maple had reinforcing rings inside while the purpleheart does not. The finish is clear pre-cat lacquer, and the hardware was recycled from older drums. The maple was carved and turned by hand, with a belt sander til it was true, and the purpleheart was turned on a lathe. Both insides were finished with a router and jig built for this purpose. Yes, they sound good!
-- Dang! I cut it twice, and it's STILL too short!
