These stave shells use less than 5% of the glue than your typical ply drums. This leaves you with a truer tone, and improved resonance. In short these drums are out of this world.Gretsch’s 6.5 x 14” Cherry Stave Snare Drum is unlike anything else you’ve ever played. Stave shells are a little bit different than your typical ply drums. The process of making a stave drum is very similar to that of making a barrel. Stave drums are composed of select pieces of hardwood that are bound together and glued at the edges. This drum is made from thirty pieces of solid cherry wood that are pinned together with absolute precision. Each piece is 7/8’s of an inch thick, so needless to say this drum has a huge sound that is full-bodied with plenty of resonance. One benefit of stave drums is that it significantly cuts down on the amount of glue in the drum. Glue as we all know is a dead sounding material, and kills the tone of your drums. On average, this “stave” process uses less than 5% of the glue than your typical ply drum of the same size. This gives you a pure, true sound that is full and robust. It is finished in a natural satin lacquer which allows the true beauty of the wood to speak for itself. Cherry wood has a vast tuning range and is extremely warm and open sounding. Cherry also has a controlled sustain resulting in extremely focused notes. This makes it ideal for either live or studio situations.
