Birch Shells offer bright sounding tones and great attack. A boosted high with slightly reduced mids and good lows has made Birch many Drummers preferred shell material for studio recording. Like shell depth and shell width, shell thickness affects the overall tone of the drum. Basically the thinner the shell the lower the fundamental tone / the thicker the shell the higher fundamental tone. 8 Ply is considered thin offering a rich overall tone suited to near-field applications.
