Some of the most recorded drums in history were made from more than one type of wood. Early American drum making saw the advent of mixing softer woods as the result of a less sophisticated manufacturing process. Today, wood species are combined to create a wider selection of sonic possibilities.
Chechen is a yellow to orange colored hardwood from the Caribbean region. The grain patterns are similar to many rosewood species, giving this wood the nickname of “Caribbean Rosewood”.
Chechen is hard and dense, which are great qualities for a resonant wooden hand drum. Chechen is a more moderately priced exotic wood than bubinga or cocobolo, but with similar density and hardness.
Mahogany has a distinctively dark, earthy tonal quality derived from the more porous, less dense wood that naturally filters the high frequencies.
