The hoops are taken from the outer heartwood (not sapwood) so they're less dense. This was deliberate to take some mass out of the hoops. Hard wax finished & buffed.
Crazy! SO beautiful. I have a 13 by 4 snare and it's a terrific, funky size.

This drum is outrageous. You have an incredible drum porn stash, thanks for sharing it with us.
