Peace Drums

Kahuna Bubinga



The Kahuna series from Peace is a high-end kit that is priced comparable to many other manufacturers' maple kits. Known for its rich appearance and figuring, high density and rock-like hardness, bubinga, also known as African rosewood, is also highly regarded for its acoustic properties. As a tone wood, bubinga has a wide frequency response, covering the audio spectrum from deep, clear lows to lots of bright top end. That's why bubinga is used in pianos and guitars. Its extreme hardness, however, makes it difficult to form into drum shells. Most manufacturers shy away from such a formidable challenge, and typically companies that offer a bubinga option don't like it known that their bubinga is only a veneer!               The Peace Kahuna is all bubinga - 9 plies of hand selected bubinga for tone, volume and sheer strength. Its beauty isn't just skin deep. The highest priest in the island kingdom of Hawaii was titled Kahuna, and the term was later appropriated by local surfers to identify the leader or master surfer of a group or club. Likewise, Peace's Kahuna kit is top echelon - drums for the master blaster. Play a Kahuna and you will know what we mean!
