14" x 5½" Segmented Olive Ash / Iroko snare SN1604
The central section of this drum is made from my favourite piece of wood I have ever had in the workshop. It was a piece of 'olive ash' - which is not a separate species of ash but from a particular tree where the central heartwood has developed this beautiful colouring and grain pattern that resembles olive wood (hence the name). Hard tropical Iroko is used for the top and bottom section.
The drum has a lovely full voice to match the appearance, with a full, punchy attack and a great rim shot.
