    Tools of the trade

The robust frames are made of the finest grade birch laminate and are finished in a choice of 'natural birch' or 'slate blue'.
For the tuning mechanism I use tough synthetic blocks which are both strong and light and are secured to the rim and hold the tuning screws. The tips of the screws bear down onto metal plates mounted on the tuning rim.
The skins I use are goatskin which I buy in from Ireland. The skins are available in thin, medium or thick, depending on your style of playing and preference.
