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.

5pc Custom Cobalt Blue Glass Glitter w/ Black Stripe Kit

Just in time to sneak under the Christmas tree. This is a sweet rock Players Series setup in a custom finish built for John Riggs. Sizes include a 16×24″ kick drum, 10×13″ rack tom, 16×16″ & 16×18″ floor toms, and a 7×14″ snare drum. All Players Series kits feature all maple shells with 8ply toms and 10ply kicks and snares. These shells give you great stick definition with warm tones, and a clear pronounce “cut” in the mix while playing with any band. The finish is a custom color wrap where you can choose any pantone color shade over standard glass glitter or other designs. This cobalt blue glass glitter wrap features a varying size black glass glitter offset stripe that pairs great with the all black nickel hardware. We also added black glass wrap on the inside of the bass hoops with a painted satin black edge to keep a seamless look.

6.5×14″ Carbon Fiber w/ Black Nickel

A truly popular CT build for us. We did a quick video years ago and have gotten insane reviews and still get tons of customer inquiries on this snare. The exact specs of the shell is a thicker version of our CF2, so the Standard CF shell is about 3/16″ thick and has sharp single 45 bearing edges and a natural high gloss finish. These have a bit more volume than the thinner CF2 version and a bit more body. Carbon Fiber is an awesome acoustical material to build with. They are truly the best cross between wood and metal shells as they have crisp clear tones, plenty of highs and depth, and are unaffected by weather or climate that typically throws a wood drum out of tune. These shells are available in all sizes from 8-26″ and we can even custom paint them for you. Shown here in 6.5×14″ with all black nickel hardware makes it a classy drum. Split 1″ inline tube lugs, a Trick multi step throw off and 2.3mm triple flanged hoops for the most open tone and dynamics.

5×14″ Karelian Birch Slingerland Snare

A unique shell constructed of thin maple ply with an inside and outside ply of exotic karelian birch. This custom shell was provided by Stone Custom Drum Co which has recently acquired and retooled all the old Slingerland shell molds. The drum has a very warm sound and great fat tone for a softer touch and that classic vintage sound. We can work with Stone Custom Drums to produce unique vintage slingerland style shells for any customer in sizes 12″, 13″ and 14″ for now and more sizes coming. Finished in our natural high gloss lacquer with all black nickel hardware. The added 8 lugs creates a fatter feel and depth instead of a typical 10 lug version that has more high end crack and wide dynamics.



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.



Super Deep Black Brass Snare

Looking for that big snare sound? Nothing touches the sound of brass unless it’s an 8×14″ smooth black nickel over brass. A super deep brass drum that is rarely seen in this size, especially for our price. Brass shells typically have great projection and a louder volume than compared to a similar sized wood shell. The brass will ring out more creating a big, fat sound when tuned lower or a tighter, bright crack when tuned up. The extra deep 8″ shell delivers a deeper bottom end and thump. All top of the line chrome hardware includes chrome over solid brass tube lugs, Trick multi step throwoff, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, german snare wires and Remo drumheads.
