5.5×14″ Polished Aluminum Bling!

Just got done taping up the box for this drum being shipped to Canada. It is our Aluminum Series snare drum in a high polished mirror like finish with all chrome hardware for the cleanest silvery bling possible! Our Aluminum Series drums are 1/8″ (3mm) thick shells with a perfectly cut fully rounded bearing edge that helps to cut down on the typical overtones of metal snares. Aluminum shells are about the driest sounding of all metal shells and has a chunky tone. The added heavy die cast hoops focus the shell further and add explosive rimshots. A very aggressive metal snare with a broad tuning range and versatility. This drum is fitted with all chrome hardware, including a Trick multi step throwoff, die cast hoops, full length tube lugs and a 42 strand German Brass wire set.

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.



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.


4pc Black Stain High Gloss BeBop Kit

A new 4pc kit with matching snare for our buddy Nick Fishman who is currently on tour with his new kit throughout the US and then off on his European tour. After hours of consulting with Nick, we determined that our thinner Standard Series Maple of 6ply toms and an 8ply kick with added custom made 3ply maple reinforcement rings would be the best drumkit possible for him and his various music styles. Our thin maple shells offer tons of body and low end but the installed re-rings add just a touch of high end cut. The color is a dark black transparent stain where you can still see the wood grain (just not in the photos of course) with our high gloss topcoat. We left the insie of the kick hoops natural for a nice wood contrast. A very cool sounding and classy looking bop kit. Sizes include 14×18″ kick, 5.5×14″ snare, 8×12″ tom, 14×14″ floor all with chrome hardware and a single tom bass drum mount installed.

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.
