so I’ve been building a drum from scratch and I love it. I’ve had to learn how to weld, carve, fabricate, forge steel, etc..
I tightened it up today and it sounds great. I used goat skin on top. At first I used natural rope for the ‘keys’ but it broke so i had to settle for and nylon rope that I dyed in brown. The body is made of Walnut.
Let me know if you like it 😀
