Hey Dennis, thanks for the props. Been checking out your stuff too, really nice, & delivered with thought & flair. Love the Dragon snares, & the funky DMX kit is very cool indeed. We've got some very exciting stuff in the pipeline too! Good luck with everything mate :)

Here's the latest one from Bellwether! It's a 14X6.5 made out of bolivian rosewood it has maple and zebrawood re-rings and a modified and polished Trick strainer with zircote cap and knob for the strainer. This is easily the most sensitive snare drum that I have ever made.

The colour is absolutely stunning! Quite rounded edges I see - nice, makes the best out of the shell tone. How thick is that stave shell? Looks quite thin, not much more than 1/4"? Lovely looking drum, & I really like your signature treatment of the Trick strainer.

Thank you! Yes this wood is absolutely gorgeous. I agree with you on the edges, the round over really brings out natural the woody tone of the shell. You are very close on the thickness. It is actually 5/16" thick.

My goodness, I've only just learn't of this terrible accident. I'm a long time admirer of Dennis' work, and was only communicating with him a few weeks ago. A humble craftsman of passion. I hope the drumming community pulls together to ensure Dennis' business continues under Britney's stewardship. This really has upset me. RIP Dennis.

Default Re: show off your custom drums!

Hello, my name is Anthony. I want to show you my 1963 (maple wood I believe) Slingerland customized 28" bass drum. My sister painted the picture for me by simply looking at the illustration (from my old copy of the first KIng Crimson album of course) then she made me a huge adhesive decal. Back in the 60's this drum was used as a marching drum, but now it is my main bass drum on my very sparse drum kit. I only use this bass drum, an old 1950's era snare, a Pearl floor tom and a few cymbals.I call this drum 'KING' because of the picture and because of the huge 28" size. I've been playing drums for about 35 years now. Thank you for looking!

Very nice snare!!! Does having different wood in the rerings make a difference in sound?
