We wanted to be able to offer you the full range of options that we can provide here at hhg drums, that's the purpose of this listing. Specifically, we wanted to give you options for a couple of different wood species that we love to use, as well as your choice of a custom metallic flake lacquer finish, in any size drum that you want, with any type of Hardware that you would like.

The drum pictured in this listing is a 14 X 7 mahogany shell with a blue metallic flake, but you can get any wood species you want, with any color metallic flake finish that you want! If you have any cool ideas for how you would like to customize your metallic flake finish, just send us a message after you purchase, and we can make it happen! For instance, we would be happy to do a blend of blue and green, or anything else you can imagine!

One of my favorite aspects of this drum is that it is a super high-end shell covered by a simple and Timeless finish. It looks like an unassuming, possibly even vintage drum from the exterior, but when you flip it over expecting to see a boring 10 ply Maple shell, you are immediately surprised by the beautifully handcrafted shell that hides under the finish.

As for the hardware, we went with our cnc-machined signature single point lugs, vintage style strainer, diecast butt plate, diecast air vent, a diecast antique silver HHG badge, 2.3 mm triple flanged hoops, an Evans G1 batter head and a hazy 300 snare side head, and 30 strand snare wires.

This drum also features our redesigned and improved internal tone control mechanism with a mahogany knob for that extra touch of class.

The bearing edges future 1/4 inch radius roundover router cut with a 45 degree intercut, the Apex where the two edges meet has been slightly rounded with gentle hand sanding to achieve perfect and even registration of the drum head to the Shell.

This is genuinely one of the coolest drums we've built at hhg in a long time. Not only does it look amazing, but it sounds fantastic, it can really serve as a workhorse drum. It works super well tuned down really low with a little bit of internal muffling turned on to achieve that big fat 70s BackBeat sound, then you can disengage the internal tone control and crank it up for an absolutely blazing sound that will articulate even the finest of ghost notes and will absolutely punch through the mix! I really hope you decide to add this custom, handmade instrument to Your Arsenal today!
