Composite Shell

Superior Shell Technology


  • Perfect drum shells
  • Superior tone
  • Optimal resonance
  • Extreme strength

Ply Thickness

The overall thickness of a drum shell effects how readily energy is transferred from the heads. Thinner shells allow the wood to fully resonate and maximize its total contribution to the overall sound. As a shell increases in thickness, it is less resonant but louder, with more and more of its tone projected to the audience. With Masterworks the choice is yours.
