Holy cow, those are gorgeous drums! In cases like this, there is nothing a stain can do to increase the beauty of natural wood.

Thick mahogany/birch shells should give a great balance of attack, warmth and volume.

Why are the shells so long? Is that how they make them, as long cylinders, then cut them in sections?
