I'd like to share my recent delivery via Memphis Drum Shop. A special drum has been added to my snare armory.

45/45 bearing edges, 7" x 14". Kept the stock heads (Coated Ambassador and Ambassador snare side). I am absolutely thrilled with this wonderful piece of craftsmanship.

Thoroughly enjoying the wonderful tone produced by beech and maple hybrid combination, in a masterfully prepared steam-bent Craviotto. Good low end and plenty of heft. It has the warmth of maple and beech with strength produced by beech tonal properties. Sounds very good high/medium and low. Very much enjoy playing this Craviotto and continue exploring the possibilities with this wonderful combination of beech and maple tone woods.

Looks out of this world, Thunder! I can almost hear it!

I wanted to go tube lugs on the recent DW-CS I purchased, but just couldn't talk myself into it, however, on your drum they look wild!

Awesome drum. The finish is perfect!
Thanks, Bob. Enjoying the finish too - cherry inlays dress it nice.

The four-point shell-plates add serious kick to the overall design! It's executed so well!
