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.



6.5×13″ Blood Red Satin Stain Snare

Built for MIKE DAVI of the rock band DAMAURA. This is his second CT snare drum. A Players Series 6.5×13″ maple 10ply shell in a custom blended color “blood red”. The stain has a very dark red base with flowing highlights of lighter cherry colored grain while popping the unique wood figuring. All black nickel hardware includes double ended GN snare lugs, a Trick multi-step throwoff, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, Remo drumheads, and a set of German brass snare wires. This drum has a ton of pop and volume with great crack and sensitivity due to the thicker 10ply and 13″ diameter, with plenty of open tone and wide tuning range with the triple flanged hoops.

Offset Stripes, Offset Lugs & A Unique Finish

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.
