A couple of years ago my son asked me to make a stave snaredrum. The first i made was from wenge. I made it without a lathe. After making this one I was not satisfied about it, But also after making the first one i like to make them. After buying a lathe the second one was made out of hard maple with mansonia (It looks like walnut. Local names are: “bété, aprono, ofun, koul”. As far as I know there is no englisch word for this wood. If there is please let me know) ) . This second one has also wooden hoops. This wooden hoop is made out of 72 peaces. This second one has also WOODEN lugs! (On one of the pictures there is a close up from the lug) The third snare drum was made out of hard maple with black hardware.
Thanks for reading and /or watching
