RIM:  Steam bent Catalpa

Rim Dia.= 11-1/16"

Rim Wall Thickness=11/16" 

Rim Depth=1-7/8"

TONE RING:  Per Buyers Request

RIM BOTTOM TRIM:  Per Buyers Request

 

NOTE:    The rim is a domestic hardwood that is evenly dark brown and very lightweight, I believe it to be catalpa but I am not positive.  If coupled with a dense tone ring like Osage orange or hickory it might have a nice tone.
