Purple Heart is a unique wood that is very dense and has beautiful natural coloring.  These two features make it an ideal wood for building great snare drums.  The density of the wood combined with a nice rounded bearing edge and the die-cast hoops give this drum a thick rimshot that you can feel in your chest.  The natural coloring of the wood requires nothing but a satin clear coat to pull out it’s beauty, and black hardware to add to the contrast.  A stunning little snare drum, check it out:
