The Zelkova Snare Drum can be described as the purest form of the drum.

Only one hollowed piece can be taken from a stump of precious 200 year old Zelkova wood, also called Akagi or "red wood". The sound that is produced from a single piece of wood has a unique and powerful attack. Each stroke produces a "block of sound" with a sharp edge and a thick low pitch, while maintaining the warmth of natural wood.

The special nature of Zelkova is highly revered and sought after by top drummers around the world.
