Offset Stripes, Offset Lugs & A Unique Finish

This custom wrap was a specialty made item that we may have to reorder it is so cool. It can be available for any color or wrap type. It consists of a solid black base with a 30% satin sheen topcoat with a hint of metallic, so it is not completely a matte finish and the metallic hint adds a bit of silvery glisten and contains a unique scratch resistance. Each drum has an offset red glass glitter stripe that is tightly butted up against the black and with a proportionately sized stripe per drum size. Tying the whole kit together, we added internal red glass on the inside of both bass drum hoops while we stained the wood edges with all black satin stain. Our all black nickel hardware fits perfectly, including 50% offset mini 1″ tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, pro spurs, heavy duty hinged brackets, 12″ DSS mount, and matching die cast claws. This Standard Series maple kit has a thunderous 20×24″ kick, 9×12″ tom, and a 16×16″ floor. A very cool kit for Mic Rawls who is already hitting the streets with his 3 bands.


5.5×14″ Walnut Stave Snare

What do you do with some left over walnut boards? Well, build a cool snare drum of course! A killer little snare drum that is great for recording, jazz, soft rock, etc. It has a drier tone than maple and a touch darker. Walnut is typically more mid focused as it is a much softer wood than maple which has extreme highs and lows. Everyone has loved this snare in our back stock and hopefully we can keep it long enough to make a video demo. This 5.5×14″ solid stave shell is only 3/8″ thick to help add more resonance and body. The drum is finished in our natural satin oil and shows off the amazing figure of this unique walnut, and take note of the second picture showcasing the sapwood walnut sections which is a lighter color. All chrome hardware includes full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, and an RCK throwoff.



7×13″ Bubinga / Curly Maple Stave with Satin Chrome

A unique snare that has become very popular for its sleek looks and awesome sound. A 7×13″ solid stave shell with alternating bubinga and curly soft maple in a natural satin stain that brings all the wood character out and helps protect the solid boards when changing environments and climates. The 1/2″ thickness adds high end and volume for a tighter crack. The all satin chrome hardware includes matching solid brass full length tube lugs, die cast hoops for extra pop and greater rimshots, and even a matching air vent that is rarely seen. The Trick multi step throwoff in brushed aluminum matches the hardware perfectly. We have done this shell in similar sizes and hardware setups, but the matching satin finish on the shells and hardware speaks for itself.  Already on its way out to Massachusetts.
