14" Seamless Cast Aluminum Drum Shell

$193.00

8x14" (or other depths shown below ) Cast Aluminum Unfinished Shell with a .250" (1/4") wall thickness. This shell is cast with 356 aluminum and is hardened to a T-6 condition. Then it is machined to perfect tolerance. Casting and machining the shell creates a seamless design which ensures the shell will be perfectly round giving the drum a clean machined surface ( NOTE*  A machined surface may have some machine lines, scuffs and or scratches ) and making it ready for any finish you want to apply. Casting and machining a perfectly round and seamless drum gives you a pure and slightly drier sound with less overtones. Oh yeah, did we mention it's cast and machined here in the U.S.A.?
