"At HHG drums, every build starts with the highest quality materials. For our stave and segment builds, we hand select and purchase only the finest domestic hardwood lumber, our exotic lumber is supplied to us by a specialty lumber dealer who is capable of getting the any exotic or specialty species from around the globe.
This lumber is then milled in house from its rough cut form, to perfectly square, flat and true stock, ready to begin the process of becoming a drum. from here the lumber is machined with the highest level of precision into many segments that will join together flawlessly to create a drum shell.
The rough drum shell, or "blank" is then attached to a specialty wood lathe capable of spinning the drum at around 14000 rpm, while spinning, the shell is carved with specialty chisels, by hand, into a perfect cylindrical drum shell. This method is more time consuming, and requires more skill, but it allows us to build amazing segmented and stave shell drums that other companies are incapable of creating."
