Carbon Fiber Shells

Carbon fiber is a long. thin strand material which is about 0.0002~0.0004 (0.005~0.010 mm) in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in microscopic crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. Carbon fiber-reinforced composite materials are used to make aircraft, spacecraft parts, racing car bodies, golf club shafts, bicycle frames, fishing rods, automobile springs, sailboat masts and other components where light weight and high strength are needed.

General speaking, traditional wooden drums are heavy. In order to have a light wooden drum, we need to decrease the thickness in shell and the weight. Therefore, thin wooden layers can not create a quality sound as well as a good strength in marching snare drums for sale. Voice verse, to have a good quality sound, the wooden layers need to be packed and heavy.

Using carbon fiber and other composite materials can solve the problem of weight and the sound quality at once. It's not only light weight, but the density is 20 times higher than traditional wooden drum shells. The shell thickness of 1.6~1.8 mm for the carbon fiber drum set has a strong body structure and powerful sound quality. Unlike wooden vintage drum sets, carbon fiber drum doesn’t cause hydrous in the body layers. The parts and accessories are not easily to be rusty caused by weathers or humidity. Winding and woven weave textures make the looks of carbon fiber vintage drum sets streamline and modern.
