Quality You Can See And Hear

  We use quarter cut lumber to build our drum shells. This makes a very stable drum shell with little or no movement due to humidity and temperature changes.

            Each drum shell is built from 30 pieces of solid wood. At B.C.W. we use tongue and groove joinery for our solid wood shells this creates an extremely strong glue joint and a better drum shell.
