We are pleased to announce that 100% Oak drum shells are now available from Tee Drums.
As always for us, when we create a product we look at every approach of the construction method and in creating our new Oak shells we wanted the classic crown cut grain (which Oak is famous for) but wanted to make the drum a little more responsive so we have chosen to alternate our plys (horizontal-vertical and so on) our horizontal plys through the shell are Crown cut (as you would expect), however, every other ply is a VERTICAL quality quarter cut Oak (strait grain) which will allow the vibrations to travel from top to bottom of the shell much faster than a full crown horizontal shell. This produces a cleaner and louder drum with a full bodied sound from low end to a high snap.
Snare shells available from 8 ply with Birch re-rings or 10 ply and thicker with no rings
Tom shells available from 6 ply with Birch re-rings or 8 ply and thicker with no rings
Bass Drum Shells available from 10 ply.
Oak shells are easily finished, either a natural oil or a gloss. Staining is easy on the oak and the larger pours will take in more of the stain creating darker streaks in the grain.
