Tee Drums Custom VG Mahogany Recording Kit
Tee Drums featured artist Alec Brits visited us back in July this year to discuss a new kit where he wanted a big warm sound from a small kit. We decided on a vertical grain African Mahogany shell with a vertical Santos Rosewood finish and for extra depth in the sound, Maple wood hoops.
The vertical grain Mahogany offers more depth and projection than a horizontal grain as the vibrations travel along the grain (nearly 4 times faster) from top to bottom head.
Tee Drums Turbo Tube BD System
Alecs bass drum has an internal tube which runs through the centre from batter to reso head. On striking the batter head, the majority of the energy will be forced through the central tube focusing on the centre of the front reso head, on a spectrum analyzer we found that this also adds a little more bottom end to the bass drum.
