A gorgeous stave snare drum made from a rare and beautiful exotic tonewood- Ovangkol.

The shell is made from one of our favorite tone woods, Ovangkol. This incredible wood species is very hard- a 1,330 on the janka wood hardness scale. It grows primarily in Tropical west Africa and is highly sought-after for its rot resistance, density, and beautiful coloring. This shell is around .5" or 12.5mm thick, and the combo of this shell thickness and this extraordinary tonewood will make for an absolutely fantastic sounding instrument. In our experience Ovangkol usually makes a snare drum that is very crispy and articulate, with incredible snap and punch.

We finished off this decadent shell with nothing but the best hardware. Our signature HHG Single Point lugs, diecast butt plate, diecast airvent, diecast bronze badge, rock-solid 2.3mm triple flange hoops, cast vintage-style strainer, and puresound snare wires, and Evans heads.

The shell features a beautiful natural lacquer in a smooth satin on the exterior. With a satin lacquer on the entire interior of the shell as well, and a classic diamond pattern wood inlay.
