All recordings engineered by Bobby Nath at Static Halos Studio.  No reverb or effects were added to the natural sound of the drums.

 

For most sound samples:

 

-Muffling ring used for low tuning range; one piece of moongel used for mid-range tuning; no muffling used for high tuning range

 

-Coated Ambassador batter head; Clear Ambassador snare side head

 

Note:  Like any obsessed artist, I am constantly working to improve my craft.  These recordings are of my original prototype drums.  When I listen to them, I hear room for the adjustments I would make if I were to build these drums now.  People seem to respond well to these recordings and tell me the drums sound good, so I have left them up.  As circumstances allow I will update the samples.  For now, these will get you in the ballpark and at the very least should help illustrate differences in sound created by the different shells.
