This is a share drum that i made out of scrap walnut from a local hardwood supplier. It is stave construction with 45 degree bearing edges top and bottom. The hardware is a bit mismatched as it is off of an old Pearl snare that i had, i wanted to make sure that i was going to be able to pull this off before i went and spent money on hardware. The finish is just a clear coat i liked the look of the wood so much that i could bear to muck it up to much with stain. This is actually my second drum, i will post the pictures of the first as those pictures show the turning and guide jig that i had to dream up before i could get to this point. anyway these drums sound great i have been playing for 25+ years and these sound better than anything that i have heard in a music store, working on a whole kit made from Maple so stay tuned. Thanks for looking.
