I have constructed this shell with a 6mm vertical grain Birch with an outer ply of Gum Tree wood which has been tung oiled and waxed finished. Maple wood hoops give this snare drum a great dry woody sound and sharp double 45 degree bearing edges cut out overtones to give you a nice snappy snare drum.
This shell can be constructed with any outer ply of your choice and with chrome, black or brass fittings.
For more information on having a custom Snare drum/kit built for you or a raw shell and fittings kit for a DIY project then please contact us to discuss sound and finishing options. Shells can also be finished in a tough high gloss glaze finish, this does effect the sound a little as you are sealing the shell more allowing more energy to travel down to the bottom bearing edge and give you a brighter sound.
Tee drums are created by professional drummer Alan Tocknell who has 24 years experience of playing live and in the studio.
I have uploaded a video of this snare drum being played
