Buckeye tree!! Jim asked one of his Amish neighbors about buckeye trees and the neighbor said his dad had a bunch of them that he wanted to get rid of so they cut atleast one down and sent green planks of it to NC and the drums were made. Only two made so far. Jim said it sounds great and will gig with it this weekend. Solid ply with rings but the rings are not buckeye.
Jim did not say, just said was not Buckeye.
