A special model. In every sense. It’s definitely not a drum for beginners, but advanced players will have a ball with it!
The core of what this drum is all about is a special drum skin: A TwinSkinBrilliance. It is a specially-produced drum skin consisting of two skins which work as if they are a single membrane. New skin qualities are created due to this unique production technique. TwinSkins are also more stable in tuning when compared to most other skins. For the FireBall a pre-used, ultra-thin Lambeg skin is taken for the outer skin layer. These drum skins had an earlier life on one of the big Lambeg drums which are typically used in Northern Ireland. On the interior of the TwinSkin, a pre-tensioned DRAGONSkinvelvet is used. Both skins are laminated in a special technique and a 'center dot' (small skin patch) is sandwiched between them as a proof. On the exterior, a pimple structure is created which causes a more homogeneous and equally vibrating skin surface.
The frame is made of beech, concave crafted and finished with a red/black dyed polyurethane varnish surface.
Matching to the overall design, the compressor tuning frame is also finished red/black. The compressor tuning system provides a precise, short-cut overall sound which is very good to amplify and/or record.
Six open star tuners ensure quick, exact and smooth-running tuning.
All in all, the Fireball is a perfectly balanced high-end instrument.
