Metal Shells

Our metal shells are made from spun and shaped sheets of metal without any welds or rivets.

The sound they produce is loud, crisp, and articulate

Ply Shells

Our ply shells are made from high quality veneer sheets.

Ply shells are generally thin and produce a focused sound with more attack and less resonance.

Stave Shells

Our stave shells are made from solid wood cut into vertical strips and glued into a circle, the wood circle is then milled to the perfect roundness of a drum shell.

Stave shells are thicker and use less glue compared to ply shells. Therefore, they produce a more resonant tone that is characterized between wood species.
