Oil Finished Model
Though a thick maple shell has a lot of potential power, it is rather difficult to play to the limit, because there is always the possibility of only getting a strong attack. It is possible to bring out the power which the shell possesses by applying a precise bearing edge and a thin oil coating.
Wrap Finished Model
The sound of this drum is produced by applying oil on the shell as the base coat before wrapping the shell with a covering material that controls unwanted high-pitched overtones and produces a deep, rich sound. This deep tone-rich sound is best suited to Rock.
