Very cool! Can anyone comment on the "sound" of the Unix drums? I'm impressed!

The wood, the thickness of the shells, the bearing edge, and the heads that you choose influence the sound, but as an owner of a Unix kit (will post completed pics/audio tomorrow) I'll say this: They are very natural and "woody" sounding. The have a clearer tone than ply drums which some many say is more "resonance". But with my set, I'd use the analogy of ply drums being someone who has laryngitis and stave drums being someone without, if that makes any sense. At any tuning range they speak clearly and do not sound stifled. They sound a bit more powerful than ply drums, with slightly added volume, but again, the head choice, wood and bearing edge plays a big factor in that I think.

Every single Unix kit has been amazing so far, this one might even top them all! How much did that set you back (I want to compare)

I need to hear before I buy! (or else it will be a Pearl Masters for me)

You're really best to get a quote direct from Frank. Frank is very reasonable and at least in my experience, will work with you to make you happy.

Hearing before you buy only really works if what you're hearing is going to be what you're going to order. With a custom set like this, there are too many variables between the wood, the thickness of the shells, and the heads used. Your best bet is to tell Frank what sound you're looking for and he will give you that.

A set from him will most likely be at least as much as a Masters, possibly less depending on what you want, but you'll have something COMPLETELY custom, hand made and unique.

I will post sound clips when I get it but...sizes, wood, shell tickness, bearing edge, heads, tuning, sticks, hands all change the sound hahahaha

Very nice set! It's good to see more alternative-construction types around. You will be happy with the sound of staves - much more woody, natural and warm, yet with greater volume. In short, all of the most prized characteristics of the drum are concentrated in stave construction.

This kit is going to be absolutely sick when you put it all together, just like Fourstrings'. Right now the shells themselves look totally stunning, I can't wait to see it set up.

Well right now my hoops are missing in action. I received computer parts with a label from Frank on them and Frank has no idea what they are. Examining how the label was attached it looks like it quite possibly was ripped off my package and slapped on to another.

Oh man that is just terrible... I can't believe someone would pull something like that, let alone to the bass hoops for your beautiful new drums. I hope you can sort this out soon so I can see your drums-- I mean, so you can put together your drums.

Not to hijack the thread more, but I think the hoops may have been damaged too. The tracking updated again with something about a damage inspection, and Frank told me that I have to call the damaged shipments department.

But he's going to order two sets of hoops from Drum Foundry for me. One he will send me to use for the time being, and another he will use to remake the ones he sent and when I get those, I send the others back :)

Holy Fk do those look AWESOME!!!!!!

W-O-W!

I have to ask, what's up with the odd sizing?

Is it one of those Golden Ratio things?

I heard a snare with that ratio thing done by a guy locally, and it sounded amazing.

You are going to have a fantastic kit that people are going to drool over.

Keep the wipes handy!

Odd sizings? Last I checked thats pretty standard for a jazz/bop kit...

You may be confused with the last number, its the thickness of the shell not the length..

OK...I didn't notice the 14" x 14" X 7/16"....oops haha!

I thought it was a 12 x 8 3/4 or something like that....I mean, that's something I would do if it would make a difference in tone/attack because of some formula if I was getting a custom anything goes kit...

I can see how you guys though "WTF is that guy thinking!?!" though :-P

Well what I said still stands, it's gonna be a sweet kit.

Well done so far!

Now don't scratch it!!

I don't think he has received the hardware for them yet.
And the finish was not finished in the picture, they are getting a high gloss.

so I'm not sure, maybe 1-2 weeks before I go pick them up.

all the hardware will be black nickel, the tom will be held with a Rims mount or a snare stand, whatever lets me place it exactly where i want and the floor tom will be on a Rims Cradle...So all my shells will be "Virgin" except for the lugs.
I'll post a picture of the lugs later.
