Get yer Red on! Need a straight-ahead 22" Tupan? Yours could look like this! 16x22; plied maple; satin wax.
Here’s a little skinnier (12” deep) and a little thinner (6-ply maple) TreeHouse Tupan that will save your back while producing BIG sounds. BOOM TEK!
Dial in a little skinnier drum at only 12" deep + a thinner maple shell of 6 plies instead of the typical 8 plies and you get a big boom that won't wear you out the third mile of the parade. 12x24; plied maple; satin wax.
Independent Tuning is the focus of what's going on here -- loosen one side and the other stays put. That means you can scream your "Teks" on the treble while still rearranging bowels with the bass side. This one features a built-in mic and all black ropes on natural oil/wax finish. 16x22; plied maple; satin wax.
If ya just can't get enough low-end, move up (down?) to a 28" diameter. Never mind it gets tricky to hike very far into the woods with such a thing...you'll be the heartbeat at the campfire when you get there! 16x28; plied maple; satin wax.
'Cause sometimes your Alpine band needs its logo custom-painted on the front of your leader's Tupan shell! This Tupan features a wooden hoop for the bass side with a metal ring on the treble side. "Framed" around the painted band logo is an organic-shaped burned trough so that the dye of the shell color stays away from the paint. Can't wait to see these guys on stage! 14x18; plied maple; satin wax.
Here's another easy-to-reach Tupan, super handy for marching down the road! 10x18; plied maple; satin wax.
Where the Mosquito serves as the State Bird, this drum is Tearing It Up in the Bayou! Outfitted with the epic customer-provided, "reliced" (mauled on an anvil with a hammer then dragged thru swampmud) strap eyelets--which are strong enough to haul your Jeep out of the lake--the new owner of this splendid instrument will have no trouble strapping this drum over-the-shoulder. Made with a comfy 15" width, this drum is easy to reach around throughout the whole gig. 15x22; plied maple; satin wax.
Here's a view of a Tupan with another version of our snazzy new-ish Independent Tuning. This time, the "belts" down the center are of the same rope as the rest of the tuning ropes. Boom! 15x20; plied maple; satin wax.

When your customer sends you a custom art head to install on his TreeHouse Tupan… yeah, that’s sweet!
