There is a reason why we chose to build most of our drums out of this rare half a century old pine. It is the heaviest and hardest softwood in the world and is excellent for the sustain and sensitivity of your drum with a full body sound. I love the 7x14. It is very resinous and has a straight grain texture. Heart pine has very tight growth rings (up to 30 per inch).  In fact, upon reaching maturity, southern pines would grow only one inch in diameter every thirty years.  This slow growth rate, coupled with the warmer climate of the southeastern United States, produces an amazing wood. We love this old wood! #heartpine #outlawdrums #pine #drummer #wood #snare #oldbarn

George Sandler laying down tracks at Johnson Brothers Recording in Covington GA rep’ing Outlaw Drums!  7x14 Traditional Heart. The drum sounds awesome!  Out of all of my drums that I own (and I have at least 15 snares, 12 with me today) this one goes up first and usually never leaves! #drums #outlawdrums #pine #old #wood #snare

The wood on this one off jazz kit is half a century old! Built from a plantation house. The kick and snare is built from the floor boards. After years of sweeping, mopping, & walking to seal the wood; preserving it and giving a very dense sound. The toms are built from the wall boards. Walls resonating the sounds of children laughing, closing doors, the vibration instilled in the wood. Only one built!  #outlawdrums #drumlife #drumshow #kit #stave #pine #heartpine #oldwood #drums
