A rosewood snare drum
This orchestra snare drum is made with the extremely dense Honduran rosewood, which is also used to make the bars in the marimba. Many drums are made by overlaying single plies of wood, but the shell of this drum is formed by assembling long, thick rectangular pieces, like those used to make a barrel.
This drum has such great head response that just taping the head makes a nice resonant tone, so it produces a rich tone whether played softly or loudly. This shell is used primarily in the orchestra, where the raw sound of the instrument is used without sound reinforcement.
