Description Additional info
This shell is handcrafted with integrity from the finest hand selected hardwoods. All HHG drums are built by a drummer for drummers. Our goal is to provide our customers with the most musical and articulate drums available today. We guarantee you will love your HHG drum and it will hold a special place in anyone鈥檚 arsenal of instruments, from beginner to professional.

White oak is an excellent tonewood, especially for percussive instruments. We've made many snares out of white oak and found that it has a warm, woody, presence with a bright and clear attack. This works especially well in the context of snare drum, as it provides the definition, clarity, and responsiveness required to execute intricate, and dense patterns, but also the power, punch, and focus for a commanding backbeat.

if you decide to purchase this drum today, we will be making a new one for you from scratch. The nice thing about this is that it allows room for customization. You can get this drum made in any variety of depths, diameters, and even different wood species. we included some of the options available on the listing for this drum, but if you I don't see an option that you're looking for, feel free to send us a message we could absolutely accommodate whatever you can dream up!

Also, we have included several wood options in this listing. You can pick any of these species, and we will make your drum AND your hoops from that species.

A quick demo of this drum in low, medium and high tunings
    • This drum features our handmade wooden hoops. The hoops on this drum are made from solid white oak. Not plywood like Yamaha style wood hoops. In fact, the hoops for this drum came from the same tree, and board as the drum shell itself.

    • The oak hoops in concert with oak shell make for an incredibly cohesive instrument, both visually and sonically. The hoops help add to the warm wood tone of the drum, while drying up the notes slightly for a super clean and articulate sound. Not to mention the hoops have a mind boggling rimshot, and cross-stick sound. These hoops are hand made by us, just like our shells, in Hollidaysburg Pennsylvania!

    This is one of the most unique and bespoke instruments we've ever produced, and we're very excited to be able to offer it to you!!
