Inspired by the great American drums from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, 12th & Vine features a 5-ply shell with a Poplar Core, 7-ply maple reinforcement rings, and our Los Angeles bearing edge. The Poplar core warms up the shell and absorbs unwanted overtones, while providing a sound that's equally suitable for live or studio use. This line comes standard with 2.3 mm triple flanged hoops, vintage “fold out” bass drum spurs, and C&C single-ended Deco lugs.
A C&C Original. Walnut shell drums may be a revolutionary new idea for many drum builders, but not for C&C. C&C's walnut shells provide a sound more reminiscent of days past than a modern style of characterized by a smooth, rounded attack with low end to spare.
