Maple shells are known for providing an event amount of highs and lows with slightly warm lows. They are a popular, all purpose choice for a wide range of styles.
Natural Bees Wax Finish for Enhanced Shell Resonance
The Natal Pure Stave Snares are finished with 100 natural bees wax so no chemicals are used during the finishing process. The wax is applied by hand to the shells without the use of solvents. It is then brush polished to increase the temperature allowing it to take to even the smallest pores in the wood. Unlike lacquer finishes, bees wax is porous allowing the wood to breath, enhancing shell resonance and giving a more natural, unaffected tone.
If the drum gets scratched, simply apply a small amount of bees wax to the damaged area and buff until the scratch disappears. If, after a while, the wax finish becomes dull you can apply a few drops of natural oil and buff to regain a silky finish time after time. You should never use solvents to clean the Pure Stave drums.
Stave Manufacturing Process
Natal has combined its traditional conga and bongo building techniques with their impressive drum kit knowledge to create the Pure Stave shells. The 3/4" thick wooden staves feel sturdy and secure. The stave process gives a freer, more musical resonance of stave. These shells also use less glue allowing greater resonance and a more natural tone.
The method also creates a vertical wood grain which is designed to produce even more resonance. It also helps to create a stunning and unqiue visual display of the wood's natural grain. The inside of the drums has been left untouched allowing the natural curve of each stave to be seen.
