Maple Shells offer warm rich sounding tones, slightly boosted lows and even mids to highs. Great for all round playing situations makes Maple the shell choice of many Drummers. Like shell depth and shell width, shell thickness affects the overall tone of the drum. Basically the thinner the shell the lower fundamental tone / the thicker the shell the higher the fundamental tone. A 15 ply Maple shell is considered thick with added mass and rigidity which will favor higher tunings. A 15 ply Maple shell will have a lot of focus and attack with a rapid decay and very little sustain. A great addition to any drum kit.
