The Romanian River Bog Oak Drum Set

• This special Wood is more than 1,500 years old!
• Bog Oak is a so special and unique wood that a documentary-movie about it was recently shot and released (available at Itunes within the title: "Masters of Resonance" - worth to watch !)
• "...Logs were dredged from Romania's Olt River which feeds into the famed Danube and eventually spills into the Black Sea. As is the case with all water-salvaged Timeless lumber, it is extremely dense and very resonant. Timeless Timber River Oak is also dark, warm, and very musical..."
• Neil Peart of Rush was so inspired by the looks and sounds of this kit that he had his now-retired-now-legendary- R40 Tour drum kit and the El-Darko drum Kit constructed and toured back then built within this same one-of-kind wood.
WHAT IS BOG OAK? Bog oak is not a species but rather a name that is given to the wood because it has been buried in a peat bog for hundreds or even thousand of years. The oak's exposure to the exceptionally low oxygen conditions of the bog protect it from decay while the iron salts and other minerals react with the tannins in the wood to give it a distinct dark brown to almost black color. Bog Oak can be consider the early stages of fossilization. Since there is such a limited supply of this wood prices are very high for it.
