The new American Percussion wood snare drum shells are produced from a special kind of plywoo
Pictured are two Colorwood shells 14
, This type of wood construction is unique because you can literally have any amount of colored plys in any order of color. For instance: 3 plys of red, 4 plys of natural, 2 plys of green, 2 plys of dark brown and 2 plys of yellow. As long as we don't exceed 12 or 13 plys. Pretty cool! It brings a whole new meaning to the word custom colors.
The two types of woods for my shells that I use mainly are; Baltic Birch & Okoume Mahogany
