Timber Timbre

Strike some warm, woodsy notes with this hardwood "tongue" log drum. The refined descendant of a resonant hollow log, it offers foolproof percussion pleasure: strike the drum with the included rubber mallets to make six mellow tones that celebrate the timbre of timber. It's impossible to hit a wrong note! Great for drum circles and dabblers alike, this beautifully-crafted oak, ash and birch instrument is built to last. Handmade by Mitch McMichen in Nashville, Tennessee.

Made in Tennessee

As a teenager, Mitch's interests shifted to making music. His instrument of choice was percussion and drums. Each day after school, he spent hours playing drums. Through college, Mitch not only continued to play drums but also studied classical piano. This training and those endless hours of practice gave him the confidence to leave his hometown in Florida and attempt to "make it" in Nashville, Tennessee. While working his way up as a studio drummer, he noticed that most percussion instruments were mass produced imports with no character or individuality. So he returned to his love of woodworking and began making his own instruments - experimenting and creating new sounds. When some fellow drummers and percussionists began asking for them, too, Mitch knew he was on to something. Eventually he retired from drumming (after earning gold and platinum records for his work with country music artist Brad Paisley) in order to focus on crafting his instruments. What started in a one-car garage has now grown to a small group of dedicated craftsman specializing in these unique instruments. Interesting tidbit: their shop is located in the historical May Hosiery Mill that made the socks for the famed Apollo II astronauts.

          Gave this to my significant other (a drummer & massage therapist) who absolutely loved everything about it. Beautiful sound quality and expressive nature of the item appeals to those musically inclined and those who wish they were!

                  I purchased this as a gift for my husbands 56th birthday and he's played with it like a little kid ever since. This drum has a very nice sound and would be enjoyed by music lovers of any age.
