Explosive tonal clarity and articulation for recording.

Delivering (arguably) the greatest drum sounds ever recorded, Masters Maple/Gum features an EvenPly-Six blend of premium North American Maple and figured, sweet Gum wood.

Combined with a shallow outer 60° bearing edge, this thin and dense shell produces a punchy, primed recording tone.  

MMG Shells
  • Wide Dynamic Range

    EvenPly Six North American Maple (4-ply) and Gum (2-ply)

  • More Tonal Versatility

    The warmth of Maple is enhanced by Gum wood’s density.

  • Outer 60° Bearing Edge

    A shallow edge that draws increased power and bite.


Built to Withstand the Test of Time.

By adding heavier, classic hardware elements to its thin, dense shell, Masters Maple/Gum carves a robust bottom end tonality with strong midrange balance.

    To enhance the overall weight and volume.

  • CL Bridge Lugs
