4pc Nesting Kit All White Glass Glitter!

This sweet little Standard Series maple kit is built in one of our favorite new finishes called white glass glitter. The white backing with clear glass glitter really picks up all the stage lights and pops out behind the band. Pairs great with the all black nickel hardware as well. Equally as unique, is the nesting feature where all the drums fit inside each other and travel in one case. The larger shells have custom latches and inner extra shell rings to keep it air tight and proper alignment when opening and closing the drums so no quality of tone is lost. Sizes include 8×12″ tom, 14×16″ floor, 16×20″ kick, and a 6.5×14″ snare. Custom built for RT Goodrich of the band JUNK PARLOR. RT and his new kit immediately toured SXSW and House of Blues in Hollywood promoting their latest album “Wild Tones” which was produced by Jonathan Burnside; known for his work with Nirvana, Faith No More, and The Melvins.

Custom Birch 16×20″ Kick Drum To Match Yamaha Kit

A custom made addon 16×20″ kick drum to match a Yamaha Recording Artist Series from the early 80’s. This series is now officially out of production and the color was extremely limited. The all birch 8ply shell is very similar to the Yamaha series in tone. We added original full length high tension lugs, same spurs, and our own high quality craftsmanship. The original kit was a limited white lacquer with a copper pearl topcoat that we recreated perfectly. Shown as the drum and hoops as the customer assembled it himself, then a pic of his new drum at the next gig.

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.

3pc Burnt Sienna Nesting Kit

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.
