MDF Stave Drum

size: 14 x 6 inches.

This is a rework of the drum I made for my MDF-stavedrum experiment; I brushed/scuffed the hardware, changed the color of the gaskets under the lugs and airvent-grommet, and I changed the shell finish from satin to supermatte. This MDF-stavedrum measures 14 x 6 inches and has a 14 mm. shell thickness, the inside is spraypainted grey, the outside is finished with fabric and non-yellowing laquer. It sounds great, which in this case is sort of an empirical claim; 23 drummers that blind-tested in liked a lot. Read more about the experiment here.

Prize: 295 Euro.
