Next Generation of HV's
Marty's and my idea of the freefloating
HV drum is now reality!!
The NEXT GENERATION HV DRUM IS HERE!!!
After he saw it, he wanted to tune it up a bit.

From the thumbs up from an enthusiastic student
I do believe the NEXT GENERATION HV DRUM is a success!!
Marty and I discussed the design,
and here it is confirmed.
THE NEXT GENERATION HURLEY INSPIRED
High Volume Drum is now being custom
made by me in very limited numbers.
Marty is endorsed by Pearl Drums
Some of the differences that were noted right away
1) increased snare sensitivity and response
2) much more projection
3) the drum sounds much more like a drum,
even with the heads torqued
4) increased VOLUME
MARTY HURLEY had this to say about the sound of his PEARL FFX HV, " the snare response is there with just a tap of your finger."
JOHN WOOTON sent me an email about his PEARL FFX HV and he stated, "I like the drum very, very much. Not only does it bring back some wonderful memories but the sound is just too good! Your craftsmanship is superb and you obviously take a lot of pride and joy into your work. I can't wait to see, and hear the whole line with these drums! "
RICK BECKHAM had a couple of things to say about his PREMIER HTS HV, "topnotch professional workmanship",
"Anyone who uses kevlar cranked to the point where the snares can't respond thus giving a choked wussy tic sound, should consider the HV shell."
HEAR RICK'S 07 DCA SOLO ON HIS PREMIER HTS HV
and see if you don't hear the notable difference in volume and snare sensitivity of the HV design!
You can also hear a great solo by the new
DCA champion Jeff Prosperie
on the normal FFX.
BRIAN HINRICHS, top staff at Echo's of New Orleans, has a more technical reply about the HV high tension snare.
"The HV Drum high-tension brings a culmination of the best of the last
three decades of development to allow the crispness of sound of the
high-tension heads with the maximum volume and clarity of snare
sound desired of the instrument.
