Once you think about it, carbon fiber is just synthetic wood with all of the advantages distilled into a controlled form. Light, strong, resonating fibers to enrich the sound.
i was sold on the Tempus 13x4,7 snare demonstrated on the drumcentreNH video and i am owner of very nice Brady Jarrah Block 12x7 snare....i think that if it is true that these drums are extremely light to carry and sound great like on the youtube videos and when they are resistent on scrathes etc... i am more and more interested to buy one nice CF Set... i contacted also the MING DRUMS because they seem to produce thin carbon shells but no one is answering....i am totaly with you on your claims about this material
