5×14″ Solid Shell Birdseye Maple w/ Matching Wood Hoops

Here is a highly figured exotic birdseye maple solid steam bent shell in a natural high gloss finish with custom made “Yamaha” style 32ply maple wood hoops with inner and outer plies of exotic birdseye veneer.  We picked the highest grade AAA birdseye maple available which is getting harder and harder to find as birdseye figuring only occurs in less than 5% of all maple.  Other hardware includes a Trick multi step throwoff, solid chrome over brass tube lugs, puresound wires and Remo 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.


Piano Black Snare w/ Custom S-Hoops

Typically one of the notoriously hardest finishes to get right. Our perfect piano black solid lacquer is created with the purest black pigment and a flawlessly smooth gloss top coat that creates a true mirror reflection. A true first-class finish on a versatile snare drum size and thickness. Proven to be great for any style of music. Also featured on this snare are specialty S-Hoops that have a reverse flange on the top of the hoop that flattens out across the drumhead to add extra crack to your rimshots and cross stick sounds. S-hoops are compared to die cast hoops but with open tone of typical triple flanged hoops. A 5.5×14″ Standard Series 8ply Maple shell including ten full length chrome over brass tube lugs, a Trick multi step throwoff, and german snare wires.


3pc Aged WMP w/ Wood Hoops & Inlays

Featuring our Hide-A-Head style maple hoops custom made to fit each drum that covers the metal collars of the drumheads to create a seamless appearance. Classic aged white marine pearl wrap with medium reddish brown satin stained hoops with matching inlays.

Solid Shell Rosewood Snare w/ Custom Lugs

A solid steam bent single ply shell of exotic rosewood drenched in our super high gloss with custom made Arc lugs, single flanged chrome over brass hoops, and a Nickelworks throwoff. We built this snare for 2010 Chicago Custom & Vintage Show contest held by DrumFoundry, where this drum competed with several others and judged by esteemed professional drummer Gavin Harrison from the influential band Porcupine Tree. This drum finished 2nd place and we were proud our drum got sent in to the show.

The single flanged hoops with clips opens up the drum a bit with a soft touch and deeper tone. The hoops along with the solid rosewood shell create a vintage tone that has killer dynamics!

5.5×14″ Maple 10ply Silver Glass Glitter

A Players Series maple 10ply shell wrapped in our popular silver glass glitter and chrome hardware. The silver glass glitter really shines under stage lights and pick up the stage lights beautifully. This 5.5×14″ size creates a versatile drum and the thicker 10ply shell adds tons of crack and sensitivity. All chrome hardware matches the silver glass stunningly, including full length solid brass tube lugs, the added die cast hoops for better rimshots, a RCK throwoff, and German brass snare wires.


6.5×14″ High Polished Aluminum Snare

A unique snare drum that has a great metal sound. Our Aluminum Series feature a 1/8″ thick shell (the equivalent to a 3.2mm shell, instead of a typical thinner 1mm shell) which we cut a fully rounded bearing edge. This helps add a smooth shell to head contact that adds extra focus and deep tone to these shells. Aluminum is the driest of metal shell sounds with a bit of crunchy tone. Inherent aluminum shell sounds with our rounded bearing edge and smooth snare beds creates a fully blended metal snare that is great for any player that needs a powerful live sound and that great recording tone.

Shown here in our upgraded mirror high polish, also available in our standard brushed natural finish as well.
