I am absolutely in love with my new drum, from the first beat!! I chose a custom made 16″ hoop drum and 2 beaters. The sound of the drum resonates perfectly with/ within me. The quality of the drum and beaters is great, and reflects the love put into their craftsmanship. It arrived quickly and was packaged well. I am grateful for these purchases, and the care instructions included. Blessings and thank you so very much!
