The shells for that set were purchased, I think the zebrawood more than likely dampens the sound a bit, at least that's the effect I noticed. The veneer is glued well with high solids veneer glue, so the effect is minimal.
My next one will be staved. I am working on some Maple hand drums right now.
I will definitely try to get an audio recording of them soon.
