Another custom blended color stain kit…

All of our wood color stains are mixed in house. This gives us ultimate control in exactly which shade of color you would like and to make sure there is nothing “stock” about your drumkit. This color was actually a mix of 3 different stains to achieve our newest color – “Golden Brown”, a rich deep brown with a hint of amber glow. All black nickel hardware pulls the whole kit together. This kit was made for DREW CUEVA of STATIC THOUGHT and was literally finished the night before their US/Canadian tour. Sizes are 18×22″ kick, 9×12″ tom, 16×16″ floor tom, 6×14″ snare. A maple Players Series kit with a 10ply snare installed with 6ply reinforcement rings for extra cut and full tone.

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.



8×14″ Natural Birdseye Maple Snare

Deeper snare drums have been extremely popular here at CT Drums. This is a Players Series all maple 10ply shell with an exotic birdseye maple veneer with our natural satin oil to accentuate the unique grain and amazing figure. The thicker Players Series 10ply shell compared to our Standard Series 8ply maple creates a louder crack with an increase in volume and projection, but this 8×14″ snare depth adds extra depth and body so a huge tuning range is available with plenty of aggressive tone. Tune it down for a fatter, warmer sound or crank it up for a brighter snap but with plenty of body and all with that sweet maple snare sound. Built with our standard chrome over solid brass full length tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops for an open tone, a Trick multi step throwoff and german snare wires.


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.


4pc Custom Painted Satin Black

A cool custom painted Players Series kit in all satin gloss piano black with a satin white painted stripe on the bass hoops to replicate an inlay. The satin gloss topcoat is a specialty clear coat that is the same quality of our high gloss lacquer but with a custom flattening agent to keep a low sheen, much like a cool hotrod. Unlike our satin stain series, this is a heavier clear coat that works with any basecoat, from transparent, solids, sparkle flakes, kandy, etc. The satin black looks killer with the all chrome hardware, including 1″ mini tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, heavy duty brackets, pro spurs, and die cast claws. The sizes include 9×13″ rack tom, 14×16″ & 16×18″ floor toms, and a punchy 20×22″ kick drum.
