The largest and therefore loudest CoreLine model. This is also the model with the longest vibration time. 45 x 13 cm (18 x 5 inches), 2000 grams (4.4 lbs).
For technical reasons, relatively thick skins with a centric spine line are used for this model.
The skin selection combined with the large diameter enable players to use special techniques that aren’t possible with the smaller CoreLine models. For example, this drum can produce a roaring, expressive bass that could otherwise only be produced by the TrHED . The sound can be described as very primal and earthy.
The CoreLine MAXI is an archaic drum with a modern design. A true king!
40 x 15 cm; 1840 gr (15.75 x 5.9 inches, 4 lbs)

About the CoreLine models:
From the choice of material to the construction of the frame and the finish of the surfaces, all components and details are perfectly balanced. Hedwitschak's core values are attention to detail and great craftsmanship.
These drums use "EdlauerSelect" Premium Goatskin, which is produced and refined exclusively for Hedwitschak drums by a world leading skin manufacturer. The process is carried out in accordance with special specifications, and each skin is purposefully selected for the various CoreLine models.
The multipoint tuning system works smoothly and allows for precise, quick and easy tuning. Thanks to the skillful shaping of the inner part of the tuning rim, the hand nestles naturally into place rendering the drum very comfortable to play.
The high quality of the CoreLine is emphasized by a classy black cherry veneer. With the intricate contours and the flush to the rim skin mounting, the design of the CoreLine bodhrán demonstrates simple elegance and timelessness. The CoreLine was launched 2012 and since then it was refined and optimized permanently.
