I think I/we got lost in the terminology. This drum is stave construction, but staves of alternate colouring are not used to get the visual effect. In other words, there isn't a light stave, then a dark stave, then another light one, etc, as is the case with a mixed timber species example. The individual staves are taken from a specific part of the log, the section that transitions heart wood & sap wood. They're then effectively book matched to get the seamless cohesive look to the shell.

The reason for doing this isn't just visual, it's also a tonal choice.
OK, got it. The staving is so subtle, it is not so easy to see. Also, the wood appears to be spalted a bit - like there are minerals dissolved in it. Or is that the grain structure?

It's just the grain structure at the transition between heartwood & sapwood. The subtly is down to careful matching of the staves.

Don think I posted this snare in this thread, and seeing as it is more wood than many, it belongs here.
The shell is worm holed and spalted Bubinga. 13X7, die cast hoops, DW throw and adjustable butt with some Bubinga accents. The lugs are custom machined units from Allstar, and I made the lug casings from Rosewood.
The drum has no particular "good side". It looks great from any angle and plays so nice I almost fall into it.
