Wood Choices

We have a vast array of woods that you can choose from to build your solid stave drum kit. Anything from North American Black Walnut to Dense African Bubinga to 100 Year Old Sunken Cypress. If it is out there we can build you a drum kit from it. Most domestic species of wood are available for the prices below. Exotic wood prices vary greatly, and we will be happy to provide you a quote if you have a particular exotic wood in mind. Here is an incomplete list of the domestic woods that are available at the prices quoted below.

Our stave drums are available in our High Gloss or Satin finishes. Our finishes are among the best in the industry. We use a polyester spray to give your drums the most beautiful and incredibly durable finish. This stuff is rock hard and buffs out like a mirror. Very few custom companies use polyester because it is so expensive and difficult to work with. We wanted our drums to have the best finishes on the market, so polyester is what we decided to go with. You will be amazed when you see our finishes in person.
