Evetts offer very unique looking and sounding drums which are constructed from the finest Australian Hardwoods available. Sonically these drums are incredible and they are flawlessly built.
Evetts hand build Snares and Kits in Australia. Evetts shells are generally either Spotted Gum, Jarrah or Tasmanian Blackwood though other Australian Hardwoods are available too. The unique sound of Evetts drums inherently comes from the shell. All their drum shells are pressed in-house with specially designed dry-forming cold-pressed moulds. Their expert moulding technology allows the resins to cure naturally at room temperature under consistent and even pressure. The processes at Evetts allow for the creation of the most breathtaking and remarkable sounding drum shells.
14 X 8 SPOTTED GUM, BLACKHEART SASSAFRAS
The 14 x 8 we have here is a cross-laminated Spotted Gum shell. The drum is finished with an outer veneer of Blackheart running vertically. The drum is then expertly Lacquered. We can't get these finishes fast enough and this one is an absolute beauty!
Evetts interiors command the same amount of attention as the exterior. It’s well known that the internal drum shell impacts on the drum’s overall characteristics. Evetts apply a light open grained lacquer to the shell interior which enhances drum projection, sensitivity and provides for a stronger tone. This also helps to seal and protect the timber.
This snare has low-mass vintage tube lugs, 20 strand snare wires, the Trick GS007 Multistep solid aluminum throw-off, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops and Remo heads
