Doc Sweeney Stave Shell Construction:
Doc Sweeney shells are fabricated from strips of solid wood called staves, laid up vertically in the same fashion a cooper constructs a barrel, then turned to exacting specifications. This is far different from the majority of drum shells on the market that use multiple horizontal plies. Whereas a ply shell is constructed by layering multiple thin sheets of wood with glue applied between each ply, a stave shell is made from solid wood pieces glued vertically in its natural state.
By constructing solid wood shells in this fashion, it eliminates the deadening effect of multiple layers of glue. Having the bearing edges placed on the end grain also allows for maximum transfer of energy down and through the wood fibers. The advantages can clearly be heard in the natural resonance and projection stave shells produce.
