The Markley Signature Birch Series drums deliver amazing punch and a fat, deep tone with a precise, short decay. Our Signature Birch kits feature 8-ply, 100% All-Birch shells.

Birch has an almost cult-like following among studio drummers and hard-hitters alike. Famous for its “Naturally EQ’d” sound, birch has enhanced lows and high-end, but less midrange tone than maple. The result is a punchy, fat tone with a bright, cutting attack and a quick decay, perfect for studio use or in live situations where the drummer prefers this immediate, punchy sound.

Because of the short decay and natural high-end that birch produces, reinforcing rings are not used on the Signature Birch series drums.
