The big Maple tree this came from is still alive and well. A massive limb blew down in a storm and yielded wood for several drums. (Waterloo,WI) The finish is hand rubbed tung oil. After applying several coats and allowing them to dry, I rub off what remains on the surface, (and repeat) leaving a silky smooth satin finish that can't chip or peel. I re-oiled it to give it a light gloss. Keep it fresh with some lemon oil, or a commercial preparation for oil finished woods.
  • This drum has a crescent moon and starburst on the skin.
  • The top edge of the wood has cured out of round a bit. - Some woods move a little from year to year, reshaping season by season. This change in shape does not affect the integrity of the drum and is actually due to it coming from a limb and not the trunk. Limbs are more dense on the top than the bottom. Over time the skin will pull the wood back into shape. It is actually more comfortable to play this drum as it is, than if it were fully round. Measuring accross it is 14" one way and 15" the other.
  • Made from Recycled wood
  • Beautiful finish and fantastic sound. Not only a beautiful item but a great sounding instrument.
  • All of my drums come with a built-in carry handle on one side which makes it easy to tote around and aids greatly when you want to take your drum out of its bag.
  • Totally handmade from recycled, hand turned wood. Superior Craftmanship and professional performance sound.
