A unique way to make your kit more portable when less bags to carry is ideal. Each shell fits inside of the next larger drum to utilize space, as the kick drum is carried within a padded case. The kick and floor tom both are split shells with an installed maple reinforcement ring to add shell integrity and prevent any loss of sound. Custom draw latches that are specially drilled to prevent shell turning or rotating. Various thickness foam pieces are inserted when nesting (or soft padded bags depending on sizes) for safe and protected travels when hauling to the next gig. Finished in Burnt Sienna Satin Stain over Standard Series Maple shells. 9×12″ rack tom, 14×16″ floor tom, 16×20″ kick drum with a vintage rail tom mount that is easily removed and packed away. Other hardware includes tail light lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, DSS tom suspension mount, rounded butterfly claws, and pro spurs.

A classy kit for our friend John Messier of POP FICTION. This is actually John’s third kit from us. It is a black glass glitter Standard Series maple kit with all chrome hardware. There’s quite a few custom touches on these drums, including an internal bass drum Kelly Shu mount with an XLR jack mounted to the top of the kick drum, Gauger aluminum tom suspension mount, and new DW Truehoops on the toms. Sizes include 8.5×13″ rack tom, 15×15″ floor tom, and a 16×22″ kick. Other hardware includes tail light lugs, round heavy duty brackets, pro spurs, and vintage butterfly claws.
Lately one of our newest and most popular drum finishes in a very versatile kit. This kit is a Standard Series maple kit (6ply toms and 8ply kick) in Brilliant Blue Burst Satin Stain which is a bright medium blue stain that fades to a rich black. Sizes include a 16×20″ kick drum, 8×10″ and 8×12″ rack toms, and a 12×14″ floor tom on a DSS suspension cradle. Great sizes for any style of player. This kit sounds warm and full of resonance due to the thinner shells and our CT bearing edges. All chrome hardware includes 1″ mini tube lugs inline, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, pro spurs, DSS suspension mounts and floor tom cradle, air suspension floor tom legs, pro spurs and Remo drumheads.
This custom wrap was a specialty made item that we may have to reorder it is so cool. It can be available for any color or wrap type. It consists of a solid black base with a 30% satin sheen topcoat with a hint of metallic, so it is not completely a matte finish and the metallic hint adds a bit of silvery glisten and contains a unique scratch resistance. Each drum has an offset red glass glitter stripe that is tightly butted up against the black and with a proportionately sized stripe per drum size. Tying the whole kit together, we added internal red glass on the inside of both bass drum hoops while we stained the wood edges with all black satin stain. Our all black nickel hardware fits perfectly, including 50% offset mini 1″ tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, pro spurs, heavy duty hinged brackets, 12″ DSS mount, and matching die cast claws. This Standard Series maple kit has a thunderous 20×24″ kick, 9×12″ tom, and a 16×16″ floor. A very cool kit for Mic Rawls who is already hitting the streets with his 3 bands.
All of our wood color stains are mixed in house. This gives us ultimate control in exactly which shade of color you would like and to make sure there is nothing “stock” about your drumkit. This color was actually a mix of 3 different stains to achieve our newest color – “Golden Brown”, a rich deep brown with a hint of amber glow. All black nickel hardware pulls the whole kit together. This kit was made for DREW CUEVA of STATIC THOUGHT and was literally finished the night before their US/Canadian tour. Sizes are 18×22″ kick, 9×12″ tom, 16×16″ floor tom, 6×14″ snare. A maple Players Series kit with a 10ply snare installed with 6ply reinforcement rings for extra cut and full tone.
