thanks for the kind words, the steambent shels make for a much diffrent drum compaired to a stave drum built in the same wood, i make lots of both, steambent shells hold tention/stress created from bending wich i find raises the pitch of the drum wich allso transfers resonance alittle more , both great construction methods and have there equal places depending on what your after from a drum
