WOOD AT ITS BEST.
If you go for wood it should be pure. Within artist series you can make the choice between shells that
are made 100% from the finest veneers: maple, bubinga and walnut. Our aim is to keep
the wood in a nearly natural condition - that´s the reason for none lacquered shells within this series.

VARIETY IN SOUND.
W A L N U T
round and warm tone, long sustain, perfect for vintage and jazz sounds - light and soft wood
M A P L E
warm and clear sound, fine projection, rich overtones - it´s half way in hardness between walnut and bubinga
B U B I N G A
full attack, deep/dark tone, powerful resonance - one of the hardest woods you can get
VARIETY IN COLOR.
Basically you can choose between two types of finish
Coatings are available as solid (matt or glossy surface) colors or as sparkle/pearl colors.
For the solid colors we can match nearly every tone. The sparkle/pearl colors are available in a range of ten different pearl tones and eleven sparkle tones.
* the displayed colored hoops are custom-option
For pure sound we prefer our satin finishes realized with organic oil and wax.
Beside neutral color the use of colored oils makes sense if you want to change the natural tone of the wood. Especially for the maple shells it´s nice to modify the natural tone.
