4pc Brilliant Blue Burst Kit

Lately one of our newest and most popular drum finishes in a very versatile kit. This kit is a Standard Series maple kit (6ply toms and 8ply kick) in Brilliant Blue Burst Satin Stain which is a bright medium blue stain that fades to a rich black. Sizes include a 16×20″ kick drum, 8×10″ and 8×12″ rack toms, and a 12×14″ floor tom on a DSS suspension cradle. Great sizes for any style of player. This kit sounds warm and full of resonance due to the thinner shells and our CT bearing edges. All chrome hardware includes 1″ mini tube lugs inline, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, pro spurs, DSS suspension mounts and floor tom cradle, air suspension floor tom legs, pro spurs and Remo drumheads.

7×13″ Bubinga / Curly Maple Stave with Satin Chrome

A unique snare that has become very popular for its sleek looks and awesome sound. A 7×13″ solid stave shell with alternating bubinga and curly soft maple in a natural satin stain that brings all the wood character out and helps protect the solid boards when changing environments and climates. The 1/2″ thickness adds high end and volume for a tighter crack. The all satin chrome hardware includes matching solid brass full length tube lugs, die cast hoops for extra pop and greater rimshots, and even a matching air vent that is rarely seen. The Trick multi step throwoff in brushed aluminum matches the hardware perfectly. We have done this shell in similar sizes and hardware setups, but the matching satin finish on the shells and hardware speaks for itself.  Already on its way out to Massachusetts.



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.

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.

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.
