Here is a stave shell snare I drilled and assembled. I got the shell from Fierce Drum Co. (http://www.fiercedrumco.com
) and hardware from Ego and Precision. The shell is 14x6.5 Padauk with maple re-rings... Yes, the wood is really that
red. Only a clear protective coat applied. Truly unique intense sound...
Andy, I'm sure it's no Guru, but it'll have to do for now!
