HOW ARE THEY MADE?
Doc Sweeney builds its drums using exceptional quality components in every phase of construction. It starts with unique, high-quality domestic and exotic wood -- and continues at each stage of manufacturing, including CNC-milled shells, custom inlay designs, proprietary lugs milled from aircraft-grade aluminum, stainless steel fasteners, custom wood hoops or metal hoops, and hand-rubbed oil finishes.
Whether you're a live performer or a session artist, our drums will surpass your expectations.
Domestic species offering a slightly warmer tone than Hard Maple. Produces full low and mid-range tone with good attack.
Shells are fabricated from strips of solid wood called staves, laid up vertically in the same fashion a cooper constructs a barrel, then turned to exacting specifications. This is far different from the majority of drum shells on the market that use multiple horizontal plies. Whereas a ply shell is constructed by layering multiple thin sheets of wood with glue applied between each ply, a stave shell is made from solid wood pieces glued vertically in its natural state.
By constructing solid wood shells in this fashion, it eliminates the deadening effect of multiple layers of glue. Having the bearing edges placed on the end grain also allows for maximum transfer of energy down and through the wood fibers. The advantages can clearly be heard in the natural resonance and projection stave shells produce.
