We offer both C and D Leads in the traditional 4ths & 5ths style developed by Tony Williams.
These handcrafted pans represent the highest quality instruments available anywhere in the industry, and are the result of literally hundreds of hours of work by our dedicated crew.
Every aspect of the instrument is carefully controlled – by the time the instrument is in your hands, it has gone through a process like no other pan on the planet. We control the selection of the steel before the Solid Hoop barrel is constructed, take thousands of measurements throughout the construction process, and carefully thin out each note to its own individual thickness. Once the pan is tuned, it is analyzed by a team of experts. Based on their recommendations, the drum is tweaked, adjusted, and played over a period of time to iron out any timbral inconsistencies that may be present.
The result is an instrument that is unmatched for balance and clarity, and that will give you, the performer, an unprecedented range of expression!
