Wood debated - what is this, mr know it all...

ok,

I was talking to Matt Smith about this quinto Brian Matza, a big collector in SF, sent him to study the shape.

its a funky quinto and i absolutely love the sound of this material..

So, i picked up these incredible tubs made by a Cuban cat in Miami named "el chino" or Luis Martinez.

He made some really nice drums... some of the nicest sounding ive every played, sos, matt smith, junior included. i was so lucky to score on these drums, they are my favorite instruments.

so, it got me thinking... what is this mistery material....

lots of pics to come.
