From the owner – Kevin Brown
My inspiration for building staved drums comes from mostly my love of drumming and creating the instruments, but also for fear of the future of these specialty African trees becoming scarce. I use sustained American Black Walnut for my main wood, it’s got a beautiful tonal quality and is durable and finishes well. I plant a tree with AmericanForests.org for every staved drum I sell.
