Chief Hank (UTUR X)

Read here about UTUR.

Size: 12 x 3,5 inch

The shell is a free floating variant of my UTUR design. It is finished with a collage of fabric and a hard waterbased lacquer. Single tension tuning. The reso side bearing edge is sharp and it's highest point makes a larger diameter than the batterside bearing edge, which has a 4,5 mm. radius roundover. In combination with the difference in thickness of the batter- and resohead, this results in a reso head that is tuned higher that the batter head. Hardware is made from patinated steel (waxed with microcristalline wax), birch and pine inlays (shellac and beeswax).
