Default These arrive Tuesday

So I won a raffle.
At the Chicago Drum Show there was a raffle/fund raiser for the family of a respected drum builder who died in a car crash Jan 18th (same day I broke my ankle). My name was drawn for one of the many items. Over $19,000 was raised.

One pic shows the color well. The other of the drum kit assembled.
Ash stave construction with a cherry aniline dye.

Sweet!!

Those are beautiful Ralph, congrats. You need to talk with Ron (rpludwig), he builds/plays drums.
