Thanks. While this is an unusual way to make drums nowadays, the solid shell is actually the most ancient way of making a drum. Modern machinery makes it easier, but it's still difficult. You'd have to get entire whole logs, cut them and have special lathing machinery to finish them off. There are a few companies doing it.

Even non-drummers can tell these drums are unusual. They have a primitive, wild look about them and a primitive, wild sound. Even the badges are branded on.
