The rings used to head the drum are 3/16" steel we roll and weld ourselves.
The rope is high quality nylon core with very little stretch that is usually found on sailboats.
We use goatskin for the head as it lasts long and stays in tune really well.
Despite the smaller size this guy gives a wide range of tone from deep bass to high cracks on the edge.
All our drums are great for beginner up through studio quality playing. A tuning and care sheet goes out with every drum and please don't hesitate to e-mail or call with any other questions. We have been making drums for over ten years, love what we do and just want to spread the music.
