This is a 17"x17" drum with maple shell and hoops. The hoop has been refinished and a coat of urethane has been applied over the tacks as well. The front face has the standard Brown family tack pattern with 4 horizontal and 4 vertical diamond tacks surrounding a tack circle around the vent hole and vertical tack lines on either side of the design. The tack line on the left is on the seem of the drum. There are 10 light brown ears held together with brass rivets.
