Stave Drum Shells are made from solid Hardwood cut
and machined into Staves, glued at their bevelled edges
and machined round, inside and out on a lathe.
We do all lathe work in house by hand so can offer any
particular size requirement you may have.
Thin shell with integral support rings or thick shell with no rings
( or anything in between!)
We can also offer any external contouring details to the shell.
The number of Staves per shell is determined by the
diameter of drum and number of lugs required.
For instance a 14” diameter snare drum with 10 lugs,
requires 20 Staves in order for the lug positioning
to be centred at each location.
We have Stave shells ready to dispatch in our Webstore,
or if you prefer you can contact by phone or email to purchase.
We can send any shell with your preferred Bearing edge
and Snare Beds or if you wish to do this yourself
we can send Straight cut ready for edging.
The shells are ready for finishing, alternatively we can
finish the shell with Stain and Oil, or simply oiled.
