The most popular wood for drum making, maple is a hardwood that produces maximum resonance, projection and attack. Combined with reinforcement hoops, it can produce a more focused sound and is well suited for live and studio applications.
Alterations in grain direction greatly influence sound. In a VLT™ shell, the outermost and innermost plies run vertically, rather than a traditionally horizontal configuration. The vertical grain places less tension on the shell, thus allowing it to vibrate more freely, resulting in a lower fundamental pitch. From VLT technology, 333 was born. This 9-ply VLT evolution also has no reinforcement hoops and produces a lower overall tone while still maintaining maximum resonance and attack, 333™ shells can be customized in any Collector's Series® Pure tone wood: Maple, Birch, Mahogany, Cherry and Purpleheart.
This listing is for the drum shell pack only.
The stands seen in the photos are sold separately.
These drums were taken out of their boxes to be photographed, and then resealed in their boxes. When these drums were removed from their package they could have been tuned, which may result in some minor stick marks.
