A custom shell we worked on for a repeat customer. This shell is a 6×13″ segment solid wood that is 9/16″ thick made of exotic Wenge with a Bloodwood center stripe. Segment shells are constructed much like a brick pattern that utilize solid wood pieces, much like our Stave Shells but in a different construction. We hosed the shell down with a ton super high gloss clear coat and buffed to a perfect mirror-like finish. The snare is dressed with all brass hardware including full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, P86 throwoff and butt plate, and remo drumheads w/ german snare wires.
This is a curly maple solid single ply steambent shell with maple single ply reinforcement rings that is stained Dark Walnut and high glossed to perfection. We use a vintage style rounded bearing edge on our steam bent shells to offer more head to shell contact and fatter tone. The 6×13″ size really pops yet has a great versatility to it. All chrome hardware, including tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops and a Trick multi step throwoff.
