Where is Tumbling Boulders?

Where is Tumbling Boulders?

I took a break from building snare drums to try my hand at guitar building.

I may return once I  have sold off my inventory of snares ...

Bubinga ...

6 x 14 bubinga snare. Vaughncraft steambent shell, single ply. New hardware .... Today's pictures are with a set of COB stickchoppers, but this will be for sale with triple flange hoops ...


6.5 x 14 Catalpa snare. Another steambent single ply shell from Vaughncraft. Wood is quite light, easy to work with and finish (tung oil on this one, my default finish ...) but also somewhat soft so care needs to be taken not to dent it. New, retro style 3 point Gibraltar throw.

Osage Orange

6 x 14 Osage Orange snare. Vaughncraft steambent single ply shell. All new hardware, including Taye style throw.

Refurbished Slingerland Floor Tom

Completing this for a local drummer. Still deciding what leg mounts to install. An old 14" mahogany shell, wrapped with a birch veneer, satin tung oil finish.
