Pine can be pretty hard if it grew in an area that caused it to grow slowly, like a very cold/dry area, like a mountaintop or something. Otherwise it’s just too soft to resonate well.Some of their ideas seem pretty cool. Others not so much. I dig their mounting system, but it is huge and aesthetically unpleasing. The lugs are crazy, like a tool box latch. The hoops, I don't even know where to start. Do we need different metals in a hoop?
I like that they have "wood wizards". That made me giggle, but was quickly curbed when I read the word "pine" a few sentences later. Pine is super soft, does it even have any properties of being a good drum material, other than being wood?
