RBH Prestige drums are hand crafted from select North American lumber including maple, poplar, ash, cherry, walnut, and more. This drum's shell is made of a solid, steam bent piece of birdseye maple complete with reinforcement rings and rounded bearing edges. These drums also feature the RBH proprietary nodal point tube lugs and a Trick throw off.
Each shell starts as a single piece of lumber that is milled to size, steamed and shaped to produce a one-of-a-kind instrument. Every aspect of building RBH drums is completed by one craftsman; from start to finish. The interiors receive as much attention as the exterior and no drum is signed until it is ready to be played. The beauty of an rbh solid shell Prestige snare drum is, no two drums will ever sound the same, even when made with the same species of lumber.
Prestige finishes consist of hand rubbed oil and wax, giving each drum a truly unique, very durable low sheen finish. Comes With A Custom Soft Case.
RBH Drums are proudly handmade in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Only had the snare a couple days. Build quality is impeccable, the care taken in creating this instrument is evident inside and out. I replace heads immediately on every new acquisition. You really get a chance to know the drum. New heads installed, decided to keep the 16 strand Puresounds on. Snare side finger tight + 2 full turns. Low tension on top was good - need to spend more time. Medium tension the magic jumped out immediately - I'm stuck in this tension - the drum's voice is delicious. The multi step Trick strainer is more than useful. Recommend an RBH Prestige to anyone in the high end market.
