Wail City Percussion is a company specializing in hand made stave shell snare drums from my workshop in New Bedford, MA. At Wail City, I passionately craft each shell to create a drum to have exceptional tone, character, and versatility that you won’t find in any standard ply shell.

 Thanks to @rahalay for my awesome Christmas gifts. #woodderd  I never really get a chance to build anything for my self these days. Last time I was in Australia a smuggled back a nice plank of Jarrah. It has been collecting dust for a couple of years now. I cut the staves about a month ago. And glued it up about a week ago. Let’s see how long it takes to get to the next step. #workinprogress
