Copper Patina Finishes Just Added!

We’ve just added these unique copper veneers that each have it’s own unique patina and design. The veneer is as thin as an extra ply or like our standard wrap finishes. They add a completely custom look and you won’t find any two finishes alike. Each is handmade and professionally applied to the shell to not affect any loss of shell tone or sound quality. Available for all sized drums from snares, to toms and kick drums. Imagine a whole kit!!!

New Sleeved Nylon Washers Now Comes Standard On All Drums

We have been using these new nylon washers for the past year or so. A great upgrade that also shows how we at Crockett Tubs observe every single little detail critically. We would just like to shine some spotlight on these little guys. It’s one of those things that is such a simple idea yet makes a ton of difference. These washers are high quality nylon that protect the plating on hoops and eliminate any metal to metal contact. They allow a smoother and more accurate head tuning, and you can actually tune them lower without any annoying buzzing from loose tension rods. They are available in black and clear white, and also available in 16 custom colors as special order.

Win This Snare Drum!

A very heartfelt build for the LOVE YOUR DRUMS FUNDRAISER, a tribute for our friend and fellow drum builder Dennis Stauffer. Dennis was the sole owner and builder at Phattie Drums and Stauffer Percussion who’s recent passing in early January 2012 hit hard with the drum community. Dennis was well known to be a honest and passionate person whose craftmanship and innovation helped lead the forefront in custom drums. Personally for CT Drums, Dennis had contributed many industry trade secrets, sold us custom designed jigs, and we traded backordered parts and items in desperate times of need.

This snare drum is one of the amazing 40+ snares and 3+ drum kits (nearly $30,000 total value) that you can win from the fundraiser. All proceeds of the raffle conducted by the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund will be held on May 20, 2012 at the Chicago Drum Show. Raffle tickets can be purchased for only $10ea and you don’t have to present to win. Purchase tickets here.

The specs on this drum we donated are a 6×14″ Standard Series 8ply Maple shell with an exotic veneer of wavy zebrawood which is uniquely different from typical straight grained zebrawood. Added matching maple hoops with inner ply of matching zebrawood and outside inlayed stripe in between exotic wenge wood. No stains or dyes, all mother nature here. Finished with our natural satin oil that highlights the natural beauty and character of the wood. All black nickel parts include full length tube lugs, rounded butterfly claws and a Nickelworks throwoff.
