daVille Drumworks @ 2012 Chicago Show

daVille Drumworks

We checked out some sweet custom shells and steam-bent wood hoops at the daVille Drumworks booth during the 2012 Chicago Drum Show. Located outside of Louisville, Kentucky, the company specializes in supplying stave shells in a variety of sizes and species (with cool features like exotic wood inlays and pinstripes) to custom drum makers. daVille also occasionally sells custom snares, and we got a chance to look at a handsome bubinga-shell model with matching bubinga hoops.
