Solid Steam Bent Cherry

TL vintage cherry 14×6.5″ with black nickel hardware and a hand rubbed tung oil finish. The shell configuration is 4-ply with a 2-ply poplar core and 3 ply cherry re-rings. The shell is cross laminated = HVHV, (horizontal/vertical/horizontal/vertical). These are thicker ply’s so there’s less glue and more wood. This drums has that beautiful fat, slightly dry tone reminiscent of the old school Ludwig and Slingerland drums of the 30’s and 40’s.
