Monarch series drums employ a 3-ply configuration, based on very popular drums-1 produced by several drum companies of the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. These drums produce a warm, round and punchy tone, with few overtones; they sound equally well along the tuning spectrum, whether tuned high or low. Monarch drums are extremely studio friendly and record exceptionally well.
All Monarch drums feature the time honored 3-ply construction which contain a poplar core that is sandwiched between any number of different species of wood. The most common configuration is mahogany-poplar-mahogany, with solid steam bent hard maple reinforcing hoops. Veneer for Monarch drums is hand selected and cut, glue pressed to a center core of poplar, which is cut from select 1/8” stock, free of knots or voids. Once out of the molds, the raw shells are cut to size and reinforcing hoops applied. After trimming the reinforcing hoops, the shell is thoroughly sanded and ready for finish.
