Custom drums news

Wow what a couple of months this has been, we have tried to pour our everything in to this site and hope it stays true to our style and beliefs in why we build the drums the way we do. As you can see it's been quite the facelift, new layout and style with many new features such as our mini ex demo store and easy to use quote form. Our galleries are packed with all the latest builds including all our press coverage where the big dogs tell us what they really think, so glad to say they love what they see. Make sure you keep checking back to the site and our social media pages too where you can find the most recent build updates.
