I have been working on this snare drum for a few weeks now. When I order raw 8 ply Maple snare tubes, they come with enough shell to get about 3 snare drums from one tube. I have tons of 4×14 shells left over. I have been waiting for the piccolo to come back in fashion.
I took 5 shells. 3 shells for the inside and 2 for the outside. Cut and fit with lots of glue and I made a 7X14, 16 ply Maple snare drum shell. We finished it with Rosewood vertical veneer inside and outside with a satin oil finish, This drums is spectacular!
