Stone Custom Drums has announced its new Super American Exotic snare drums. Stone is well known for its shells of exotic and North American woods, manufactured in Indiana. Now it is adding exotic drums that are built around a core of native woods such as cherry from Indiana. Stone also owns the original Slingerland shell molds and its designs are influenced by the golden age of American drum making.
The Super American Exotics are currently available in a choice of koa (above), rosewood, or bubinga over native wood cores. The 7-ply drums are available in 10-lug or 12-lug models, and in 14 x 5 1/2 to 14 x 6 1/2 sizes.
