3pc Burnt Sienna High Gloss Kit

A classic CT Standard Series kit featured in our distinct Burnt Sienna stain under our premium high gloss clearcoat. This is a sweet little 3pc Maple set with an 18×20″ kick 8ply drilled for a vintage rail mount and cymbal arm. This helps eliminate extra hardware stands and a tighter setup with less floor space. Added 6ply maple 9×12″ rack and 14×14″ floor tom complete this versatile setup. All quality chrome hardware includes 1″ inline mini tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, pro spurs, heavy duty hinged brackets, rounded butterfly bass claws, and a vintage CT crest bass logo on a Fiberskyn head.

A natural blonde dressed in all black

A killer kit made for all music situations and dressed to kill. Finished in a natural hard satin clear that is a specialty finish that is similar to our ultra durable high gloss top coat but with a low satin sheen. So you have the best finish clarity of the wood and greatest amount of durability than any other finish out there. Our Standard Series all maple shells are thin for a warm full tone and great for live and recording, or for any other situation. Sizes were made with versatility in mind as well. Two different size bass drums for anything from jazz to rock, and three versatile tom sizes that can be used as a 5pc or just a 4pc with either kick drum. Sizes include 18×22″ and 14×18″ kick drums, 8×10″ and 9×12″ rack toms, 14×14″ floor tom, and our most popular snare size – 6.5×14″. These shells look gorgeous paired with the all black nickel hardware. Parts include, mini 1″ tube lugs with 50% offset, die cast bass drum claws, pro spurs, DSS tom mounts, heavy duty brackets, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, and a Trick multi step throwoff.



5pc Maple Kit in Brilliant Blue Burst Satin Stain

A custom stained Standard Series Maple kit made for Adam Wilson; which is his second CT drumit.  This is a custom blended color we called Brilliant Blue to Black Burst in a satin stain finish.  The chrome hardware really set off the color and wood grain.  Sizes include 8×10″ tom, 8×12″ tom, 14×14″ floor, 16×16″ floor, 16×22″ kick.  The kit includes all chrome over solid brass mini 1″ tube lugs inline, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, heavy duty hinged brackets, tom suspension isolation mounts, pro spurs, and Evans drumheads.


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.
