New 3ply Maple/Poplar/Maple kit with 20″ kick

Get that vintage sound with modern made shells and parts. Here is another brand new kit featuring our 3ply Vintage Series drums. These shells are made of thick ply of poplar sandwich between two plies of thick maple for a really rich and warm tone. These are straight wall shells that do not have any reinforcement rings on the inside so these create a wider tuning range and deep lows to bright highs. Sizes on this kit include 16×20″ kick, 8×12″ rack, and a 14×14″ floor tom. All vintage style details include aged white marine pearl wrap, mini tube lugs, butterfly claws, wrap inlayed bass drum hoops that were stained in satin black, T-handle tension rods, and many other high end parts.

Look out for a new demo video featuring this kit soon too!

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.

Custom Tama Concert Mini-Tom Addons

We don’t usually do counterfeit drums, but lately we have gotten a ton of requests. Some larger companies maybe don’t offer particular sizes for addons. These unique single headed concert style mini-toms were 5.5×6″ and a 5.5×8″ to upgrade the customer’s Tama Starclassic Birch/Bubinga series. We sprayed a custom tinted heavy chrome flake high gloss lacquer and stained the inside to help match the bubinga on the rest of the kit.

Blue Sky Pearl 3pc Vintage Maple Kit

A great jazz kit built towards that great Gretsch feel. Our thicker vintage style maple shells built with thick poplar inner plies and wide maple reinforcement rings are made to replicate older American style shells to produce a warmer tone and that vintage feel. Sizes include – 8×12″ tom, 14×14″ floor, 14×18″ kick. The added die cast hoops allow for wider tuning range without sacrificing tone and to bring out better highs, and the Gretsch style reproduction lugs all add to the vintage look. We cut a unique rounded 30 degree bearing edge on all drums to add that fat old school sound that was common on these style kits. Matched with high quality chromed hardware and the blue sky pearl wrap with all satin black hoops and matching inlays create a great vintage jazz 3pc kit. Other features include a vintage style rail bass drum mount, lightweight vintage folding spurs, modern DSS suspension systems, fiberskyn heads all around, and rounded butterfly claws.
