Well this is a proto type so I can put a mic inside and run the drum thru a effects board, but…......... I’m not really happy with the top being the part that comes off, next one will have a panel in the back.
As you can see I put some cork around the top edge inset a little to give it a cushion I put the blocks in the corner to keep the sound from falling into to a dead sound area, (I learned that from a drum guy guess we will see how much difference it makes) So I had a mic for it but its the wrong one so I’m going to do some more research on line and see what I can find and at that point I’ll be able to get a better idea on mounting it, it will be on the back wall of the drum just not sure how yet.
So top is made of mahogany sides are walnut and cherry, the edge trim is quilted maple, the bottom is a 1/4 plywood this is what gives it the big sound. 5 1/2” tall by 8×17
Let me know what you think
I messed up those inlays so I did some carved veins and filled them in with contrasting color putty, kinda trashy looking oh well
