Good drums, can be tuned high or low. Comes in maple, copper and brass. Sizes 3.5x14, 5.5x14, 6.5x14. Also comes in steel 3.5x13. loudest=brass 6.5x14 warmest=maple 5.5/6.5x14 most versitile=copper 5.5x14 best=copper 5.5x14
Copper 5.5x14 is probably the best because it has some warmth but still alot of projection. It can be tuned up or down and still sound good. These drums are great. The lugs arent drilled into the shell so no vibrations are lost. This also means you can change ythe entire shell as easily as changing a drum head. All drums feature diecast rims for supper loud rimshots and wide tuning range.
Be warned though if you want to change the siz of the shell buy a 3.5x14 drum so you only have to buy new tension rods. If you buy a 6.5x14 and want to fit a 3.5x14 shell you will have to change all the lugs which are very expensive and hard to find.
Expect each drum to cost around the £250-£300 mark depending on size and material. The shells i have seen for about £100-£150
These drums are fantastic and can be used in a wide range of styles, be it rock, jazz, or even orchestral
