5×14″ Padauk & Maple Stave

The combination of 2 incredible woods for a drum. Padauk has a nice bite but naturally has a darker tone that is complimented with alternating staves of maple, a staple material choice for drums, which adds high end crack and warmth. The thin 3/8″ shell provides the most amount of low end body and resonance while retaining strength integrity. Stave drums have a bit more tone than a typical ply shell with a unique look. This 5×14″ snare features turret double ended lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, and a Trick multi step throwoff.
