HHG 14 X 8 STAVE MAPLE WITH HAND PAINTED TATOO ART SNARE DRUM
We are very proud and excited to welcome HHG Drums (Haggerty Hollow Guild) to Drumazon. This is another UK exclusive line and we have been very excited to receive our first shipment since learning about the company and meeting Sam to discuss this first consignment. HHG use traditional woodworking techniques coupled with cutting edge equipment to provide instruments that sonically and visually deliver at the highest level.
At HHG drums, every build starts with the highest quality materials. For their stave and segment builds, HHG hand select and purchase only the finest domestic hardwood lumber, the exotic lumber is supplied to them by a specialty lumber dealer who is capable of getting any exotic or specialty species from around the globe.
This lumber is then milled in house from its rough cut form, to perfectly square, flat and true stock, ready to begin the process of becoming a drum. from here the lumber is machined with the highest level of precision into many segments that will join together flawlessly to create a drum shell.
The rough drum shell, or "blank" is then attached to a specialty wood lathe capable of spinning the drum at around 14000 rpm. While spinning, the shell is carved with specialty chisels, by hand, into a perfect cylindrical drum shell. This method is more time consuming, and requires more skill, but it allows HHG to build amazing segmented and stave shell drums that other companies are incapable of creating.
