I’ve always enjoyed combining wood and metal elements in this manner. The incorporation of the metal layer in the sides gives them extra mass, which serves a particular acoustic need unique to this drum. Wenge possesses a clear, albeit quieter, voicing than most of the other face woods we use. 18” L X 8.5” W X 6” H.
Handcrafted in Flagstaff, Arizona using carefully selected exotic hardwoods and metal. Face wood: Wenge / Sides: Wenge layered with aluminum.
