Decked out in a fresh batch of 6061 Aluminum Lugs, this 4x14 is such a cool size! The shortness of the shell makes it chirp, but the Mahogany of the shell adds bark to its voice! 4x14; vintage mahogany; satin wax.
Here's another look at how these Compact Nesting Kits can work: a shallower bass with a deeper floor tom and regular mounted tom means that the 3 pieces all fit in one case where the snare would be carried separately. For more kicks and grins, this project sports Spider Leg Spurs. 7x12, 13x16, 14x20; plied maple; satin wax.
Here's a fun project showing a set using some of the new 6061 hardware mixed with some standard chrome hardware. These drums were made for a project in New Orleans that required light and quiet drums -- they're light and, when muffled, quiet, though they open up when you need them to! 7½x12, 14x14, 10x20; vintage mahogany; satin wax.
Get your hands on a Compact Nesting Kit CS-16 covered in a powerful purple! This drumset nests and fits into a 16" floor tom case, allowing it to store small and travel easily. Tune the drums up high for beautiful singing tones, or drop them down low for HUGE sounds. 7x10, 9x13, 15x16, 4½x12; plied maple; satin wax.
From the list of nearly 50 Compact Nesting Kit configurations on the TreeHouse Drums website, here we have the #7 option. Sporting grey hoops with stunning ocean blue shells, two cymbal arms, and rim clips for floor tom legs, this kit is practical, beautiful, and all nests inside the bass drum. 8x12, 10x15, 16x18; 4½x14; plied maple; Hardmatte wax.
Built to compliment this customer’s acoustic set up, this snare drum and single-headed timbale feature a two-tone dark brown/light caramel color and ⅞” brackets for quick and easy set up. 5½x12, 6½x12; plied maple; satin wax.
Can you believe it?!? 21 drums: a set of 8" Tube Toms AND a set of Concert Toms AND a set of Concert Bass Toms AND a kick drum AND two Snares! This kit sports our new custom-logoed Aquarian heads. 9x8, 10x8, 11x8, 12x8, 13½x8, 15x8, 16½x8, 18x8, 6x6, 7x8, 8x10, 9x12, 11x13, 12x14, 13x15, 14x16, 10x18, 10x20, 18x24, 5½x14, 4⅞x12; plied maple; satin wax.
½“ thickness of Solid Stave Bubinga Goodness radiates outta this grand instrument! For a fun project, we made two at the same time featuring the same hardware and same 24-stave tongue-and-groove construction shells. If your snare doesn't offer enough girth or puncture your audiences' eyeballs enough, get one of these (add diecast hoops if you need to evaporate your audiences' eyeballs...) 7x14; solid stave bubinga; shiny wax.
Need a Tambora Sinaloense for your Mexican Banda Sinaloense, Tamborazo Zacatecano or Duranguense? This bass drum features a fun 2-color dyed look on a thin Maple shell with satin wax finish, a thin Maple shell with rounded Bearing Edges to bring out all the lows, all chrome hardware, 14 lugs per side with T-rods, metal hoops, and cymbal holder on top. It includes an authentic hand-made felt mallet (Bolillo Temo), top cymbal handle and sounds HUGE! 24x24; plied maple; satin wax.
I asked Jason about creating a drum that matched the look of my kit, and provides a deep, resonant boom that could approximate an Odaiko/Taiko drum sound in my acoustic kit, without the weight, space and expense of the real thing. We discussed shell diameter, thickness and depth, kit placement, and heads selection to arrive at the design that made most sense.
The result is beautiful, fits perfectly in the kit, and sounds SO DARNED GOOD! In my big acoustic kit (22 pieces), all made by TreeHouse, this beast of a drum is my current favorite. It allows me to add a massive bottom end to some arrangements, add taiko-like elements to others, or just create a brooding tonal atmosphere. So much fun!!!!
