Seamless shell spun from a single piece of 2.0mm aluminum, powder coated in silver vein.

This drum has a SUPER-STAVE shell extension in Red Oak / Birch inserted into the shell on the snare side, finished with a purple stain and satin top coat.

As the super-stave construction has a perpendicular piece of birch glued in the middle, this will keep the stave portion dimensionally stable to the aluminium part.

The lug bolts hold the two components tightly together.

Black nickel hardware

Triple flanged hoops

The snare side has a 3/16 to 30 degree edge with the AVA snare bed profile.
The snare beds on spun shells are too small for my liking. It meant snare wires had to be over-tightened to stop them from unwanted rattling.
I really like snare wires to be on the looser side, to let them sing.
A deeper wider snare bed lets this happen and helps avoid sympathetic buzz.
This was the main reason for initially trying this hybrid design, to add my own bed profile..
Crazy part was, I didn’t expect it to sound so good!
If you haven’t had the chance to try one you should!

Everyone who has an AVA HYBRID loves it!
