Ronn Dunnett of Dunnett Drums brought his new George H. Way Drum Co. acacia drums to the 2018 Hollywood Drum Show, showing off the beautiful medium brown drums with tuxedo lugs. The four-ply toms and bass drum include reinforcement rings, as does the two-ply snare drum. You may have heard about these drums in our recent exotic wood snares article, which included the Carter McLean signature model. This is the same series, but in larger sizes than the McLean signature kit.

“It’s probably the closest thing you’ll ever see to koa, and they sound fantastic,” says Dunnett in this video.
