Second Grade – 12.5″ Ivory Coast shell – Hard Target
Not much wrong with this medium sized ripper.
Sanded with glassy bearing edge, oiled and good to go!
Country: Ivory Coast // Wood: Iroko // Diameter: 12.5″
Height: 62cm // Weight: 7kg
Imperfections – wood stains and a scuff or two
There’s plenty of “project drums” in this range. ie Shells aren’t cosmetically perfect but will provide a first grade sound once they’ve been given some love (or not) and skinned up.
– Oval shaped head or wonky structure
– Wood knots in the grain.
– Chips in the carvings
About the Timber
Iroko is a lighter-weight golden hardwood which produces more portable drums. Usually carved in Burkina Faso or Ivory Coast in a style emphasising crisp tones and slaps.
