The box is made with cabinet grade plywood, the top is solid piece of Sapelle and the bottom is a 1/4" thick piece of plywood to achieve optimal sound reverberation. A light clear coat to protect the wood top and the box is painted with a simple color graphic as you can see. In the back of the drum there is a handle for ease of transport.
The drum measures 8"x17"x6"
I prefer to play these drums with my hands but I do supply a set of bouncy ball mallets OR wooden drum sticks that come with this purchase for free. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN THE NOTES WHICH SET YOU WANT IN ORDER TO SPEED UP THE SHIPPING PROCESS. OTHERWISE I WILL SHIP THE BOUNCY BALL MALLETS.
Bouncy ball Mallets – I've tried many different glues to keep the balls on the end of the stick but can't seem to find one that will work, therefore I CAN'T guarantee the balls will stay on. If by chance they do fall off in the first 30 days of purchase please contact me and send the stick and ball back and I'll replace it for you. These drums are sold without the stick as part of the price I just include one set for free for your enjoyment. I would recommend going to your local music store and getting a real pair of mallets if you plan on playing for a long time.
Each drum I make sounds a bit different from the next, this is due to the species of wood and the density of each piece, along with the size of the tongues. If you see something you like but want it custom convo me and I can set up a custom build for youSo that you can get a feel for the awesome sound these puppies can make.
