7×13″ Snare with Tons of Pop and Tone

A funky 13″ snare drum that has tons of pop and tone. The 8ply maple of our Standard Series coupled with the 7″ depth and 13″ diameter creates a full bodied snare drum that has a tighter attack and warm tone. Finished in our Natural Satin Oil on a beautiful shell we chose with some slight curly figuring. All chrome hardware including full length solid brass tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops for a more open tone, and an RCK throwoff.

7×12″ Snare & 14×16″ Kick Turquoise Glass Glitter

Big things come in small packages, as they say. This is a 14×16” Standard Series 8ply Maple kick drum and a 7×12″ snare drum in Turquoise Glass Glitter. Both of these drums were built for a our youngest female drummer, Sephie. A young aspiring drummer looking for a high end quality kit, yet something with a small footprint and portability in a cool finish. Addon toms will be built in due time, but this kick and snare combo’d with a hihat are totally fun to play and sound unbelievable. This is our second kick drum in this size and proves that we are fully custom and can build just the right drum for anyone.



Wood Hooped Kit Over Aged White Marine Pearl

This kit looks exactly as it sounds; classic and sweet. It has a nice warm tone from the thin maple shells and that classic old school sound with the wood hoops. A 4pc Standard Series Maple kit in aged white marine pearl with wood hoops in Tomacco satin stain with matching inlays. This is a great example of our Hide-a-head hoops that sit over the head collar instead of on the collars like bass drum hoops. All chrome hardware with chrome over solid brass 50% offset mini 1” tube lugs, rounded butterfly claws, pro spurs, DSS suspension mounts, heavy duty brackets and a Trick multi step throwoff. The matching Remo Fiberskyn front logo bass drum fits the theme perfectly. Sizes include 16×20” kick, 7×10” tom, 8×12” tom, 14×14” floor tom, and a 5.5×14″ snare.


4pc Black Stain High Gloss BeBop Kit

A new 4pc kit with matching snare for our buddy Nick Fishman who is currently on tour with his new kit throughout the US and then off on his European tour. After hours of consulting with Nick, we determined that our thinner Standard Series Maple of 6ply toms and an 8ply kick with added custom made 3ply maple reinforcement rings would be the best drumkit possible for him and his various music styles. Our thin maple shells offer tons of body and low end but the installed re-rings add just a touch of high end cut. The color is a dark black transparent stain where you can still see the wood grain (just not in the photos of course) with our high gloss topcoat. We left the insie of the kick hoops natural for a nice wood contrast. A very cool sounding and classy looking bop kit. Sizes include 14×18″ kick, 5.5×14″ snare, 8×12″ tom, 14×14″ floor all with chrome hardware and a single tom bass drum mount installed.

Piano Black Snare w/ Custom S-Hoops

Typically one of the notoriously hardest finishes to get right. Our perfect piano black solid lacquer is created with the purest black pigment and a flawlessly smooth gloss top coat that creates a true mirror reflection. A true first-class finish on a versatile snare drum size and thickness. Proven to be great for any style of music. Also featured on this snare are specialty S-Hoops that have a reverse flange on the top of the hoop that flattens out across the drumhead to add extra crack to your rimshots and cross stick sounds. S-hoops are compared to die cast hoops but with open tone of typical triple flanged hoops. A 5.5×14″ Standard Series 8ply Maple shell including ten full length chrome over brass tube lugs, a Trick multi step throwoff, and german snare wires.


6.5×13″ White Marine Pearl

A very popular size for all styles of music when you require a more focused “pop” than what you get out of a typical 14″ snare. This Standard Series 8ply maple shell coupled with this size creates a well balanced open tone with a tighter snap but plenty of depth. Great for a main snare, or in this case for Don Updike, a great addition to anyone’s snare collection. Professionally wrapped in White Marine Pearl with all chrome hardware, including full length tube lugs, a RCK throwoff, and 2.3mm triple flanged hoops.

Exotic Mappa Burl Veneer Snare

Nature’s best. An exotic Mappa Burl veneer that features tons of curly and quilted figuring and a “peppered” burl look that looks killer on our high gloss lacquer. An 8ply maple Standard Series shell with our CT bearing edges and smooth snare beds. The natural finished veneer is really set off by the black nickel hardware. Hardware includes solid brass DF tube lugs, Nickelworks black with black nickel throwoff, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops for a more open full bodied tone, german snare wires and Remo drumheads.
