BFD JEX Expansion Kit features a high-end, custom hand-made kit from XDrum's Xotica line.
The drums feature 6-ply Keller Maple shells with an additional ply of Sapeli Pommele running vertically, resulting in excellent, focused low-end. The finish is hand-applied tung oil, which leads to a very open tone.
