Wood Grade Definitions:
1. Premium: Hand chosen for superior grain, figure and color.
2. Premium Partial Curly: A combination of premium grade and curly grade, (curly grain is know as Curly     Grade).
3. Full Curl: All curly grade.
4. Highly Figured: Wide exaggerated figure occasionally found in Monkeypod wood.

Or you can choose an Alternate Style Combination.
Monkeypod Combinations:

Koa Combinations:

Alternating Staves: Alternating stave woods can be done either as single staves or double staves. A single alternated stave example would be like Koa and Mango wood staves side by side (striped).
A Double Alternated example would be like 2 book matched Monkeypod staves next to 2 book matched Mango wood staves.

Book Matching or Mirror Cutting: Is the process in which 2 staves are split in half becoming a matched pair, similar to a mirror reflection of each other in appearance.

Drum Models:

Custom Traditional:
Custom Traditional model drums are outfitted with Handcrafted Mirror Finished Stainless hardware made by us. Unlike chrome-plated hardware, stainless doesn't rust or peel do to the chromium being part of the steel. It's also one third harder than mild steel used for chrome plating. We are the only company in the world that produces this quality of hardware.
  Natural Fusion:
Natural Fusion model drums are outfitted with top quality chrome hardware.
