And likewise, blends of different woods would have their own unique tones. Using different woods is a proven practice. The 100% goal is a bit random anyway as materials like wood, have many tonal characteristics and can vary tree by tree. If you get a drum made out of high quality and matched wood plies in terms of quality, whether they are purely one type or a hybrid blend, it can have many tonal qualities that are inherent to that blend of the varied wood types, which are then affected by shell thickness, bearing edges, hardware, heads, and overall construction.Not a fan of hybrids either. Different woods have different tones, if I want a certain characteristic, I want that to be 100%!
They seemed to have offered 15” in the past though, maybe as a special order?I know it doesn't help, but I believe they offer 15" toms in the top-shelf Star lines...at least they used to. Pity, because I love my 15" Starclassic Performer 12x15.
I love that Molten Brown Burst finish. Also if you order the 3 piece shell kit the bass drum is only 14" deep for all of us who prefer 14" depth..
