There is nothing inherently wrong with Luan. C&C uses it on their drums to create their sound and charges a premium price for it. Marketing has made us all lose touch with reality about woods.Perhaps these Luan drums are made of a higher quality luan? I feel like if luan was undoubtedly a “cheap” wood Pearl wouldn’t be so proud to highlight it.
I don't know... YOu have to ask the Pearl organization who made that decision to put only women on that job... I mean... They did it for a reason... right??Being meticulous is gender specific ?
