UTUR = Ultra Thin Ultra Rigid. Read more about this design in "What is UTUR?".
Size: 15 x 6 inches. The wall material is a piece of a 3 mm. thick vintage birch Premier drumshell. The veneer is paduk, finished with oil, shellack and wax. The hardware (includig strainer and butt) is handmade from aluminum (threaded brass inserts in the tubes). This drum combines extremes: It can be very loud, fat and agressive if you hit it hard (and you won't be able to choke it!), while remaining very sensitive when you treat it gently. Prize: 495 Euro's.
