6.5×14″ Carbon Fiber w/ Black Nickel

A truly popular CT build for us. We did a quick video years ago and have gotten insane reviews and still get tons of customer inquiries on this snare. The exact specs of the shell is a thicker version of our CF2, so the Standard CF shell is about 3/16″ thick and has sharp single 45 bearing edges and a natural high gloss finish. These have a bit more volume than the thinner CF2 version and a bit more body. Carbon Fiber is an awesome acoustical material to build with. They are truly the best cross between wood and metal shells as they have crisp clear tones, plenty of highs and depth, and are unaffected by weather or climate that typically throws a wood drum out of tune. These shells are available in all sizes from 8-26″ and we can even custom paint them for you. Shown here in 6.5×14″ with all black nickel hardware makes it a classy drum. Split 1″ inline tube lugs, a Trick multi step throw off and 2.3mm triple flanged hoops for the most open tone and dynamics.

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.

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.

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.
