6×13″ Segment Wenge & Bloodwood Snare

A custom shell we worked on for a repeat customer. This shell is a 6×13″ segment solid wood that is 9/16″ thick made of exotic Wenge with a Bloodwood center stripe. Segment shells are constructed much like a brick pattern that utilize solid wood pieces, much like our Stave Shells but in a different construction. We hosed the shell down with a ton super high gloss clear coat and buffed to a perfect mirror-like finish. The snare is dressed with all brass hardware including full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, P86 throwoff and butt plate, and remo drumheads w/ german snare wires.

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.



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.



7×14″ Birdseye Maple With Caribbean Blue Burst & Custom Lugs

This Players Series 10ply Maple drum was dressed with an exotic birdseye maple veneer that has tons of AAA figure and an insane amount of dense grain. We custom painted a new Kandy transparent color custom blended in house called “Caribbean Blue” to natural burst in high gloss that enhances the exotic birdseye figure and pops the grain. This drum was built for Chris Kennedy of QUICK ACTION DRUM LUGS as a show model to promote his quick release custom made lugs. These unique lugs are made so that you only have to partially loosen the tension rods and then turn the whole hoop and the head is released for quick changing. We are a fully authorized Quick Action Drum Lugs builder for your next drum build when seeking any quick release lug designs they have available.

This snare is a 7×14″ maple with all chrome hardware, including UNO quick release lugs, 2.3mm heavy duty triple flanged hoops, a Dunnett R4 swivel throwoff, and Remo drumheads.



Vintage Mahogany 6.5×14″ Snare

Our Vintage Mahogany Series shells are reminiscent of older 70’s American made shells that have become highly desirable for their warm soft tone. Our shells utilize the newer shell forming technology with stricter tolerances while still paying homage to the vintage sound. These shells are made of mahogany faces with a poplar core and 10ply wide maple reinforcement rings. Sticking with the vintage sound, we cut a roundover bearing edge to add more head to shell contact for a fatter tone and less ring. Shown here in our natural satin oil with a spectacular ribbon mahogany face, chrome hardware, beavertail double ended lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, RCK throwoff and German brass snare wires.

6.5×14″ Titanium Snare!

Our Titanium Series shells are one of the finest made shells on the market! All shells are first programmed through CAD, then water-jet cut to perfect length and all holes are perfectly cut for precise alignment and placement. This ensures the strictest tolerances for any metal shell. This drum is finished in our brushed natural finish with a satin sheen, also available in mirror high polished. The 6.5×14″ snare drum is fitted with full length chrome over brass tube lugs, die cast hoops, a Trick multi step throwoff, and Remo drumheads.
