Full Lug

In the early 1960's the English Drum Company of Rose Morris, became involved in the manufacturer of pipe band drums. By the mid-60's bands playing the Rose Morris "Clansman" drums were winning major Championships in the UK, North America and Australia.

With the introduction of the US developed plastic drum-heads, there was a change in drum sound which in time bands accepted. All these makes of drums were capable of producing a good sound for pipe bands, but quite a few failed by over-tension of the heads and failing to adjust the snares correctly. This still happens today.
