An 11-ply 22" x 18" bass drum with hybrid shells. The center ply is jatoba; this is a very hard wood' and it anchors the fundamental of the shell. Sandwiched on either side of this is kapur. This wood is in the mahogany family and adds warmth to the sound of the drum. The inner and outer plies are maple, which rounds out the tone adding high and mid frequencies to the shell.
