    Default Custom Drums

    As you can tell I'm new to the board here. I've been looking around and researching for a drum company that makes good custom drums. I was hoping that most of you people on this board can recommend me a couple of companies I can look into. Also your opinions on other companies. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I've heard of Conaway drums and seen a few of their sets at a local drum shop. They're supposed to be one of the best, but I don't have any real experience. The shells are all keller maple and they have really cool finishes and hardware.

    What do you mean by "custom". Like hand-made exclusively for you by a boutique drum company or like the SQ2's or DeLites by Sonor or a DW custom made set? For my money, I'd go with an established name company like Sonor or DW over any boutique shop.

    I agree with Stix. Most of the custom boutique drums use the same materials and whatnot. Name brands give you what you want, especially DW.

    Cool Custom Drums

    Hey, tubby--welcome aboard...as d_c says, you have an appropriate name (since drummers are often referred to as tub-thumpers!).

    If I were going custom, I would take a look at the DWs, since I've heard very few complaints about them from fellow drumchatters...

    Again, welcome to DrumChat...and...
    keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!

    I just ran into PO' Boy drums the other day. I think they deserve a good look.

    I guess everyone else already said it, but DW buddy. Noone really does custom drums like DW. You can even build your custom kit on their website, and have it shipped to the closest dealer to you.

    I have to say that even though my main kit is the DW collectors series and I LOVE them but there's plenty of companies out there that have MORE custom options than DW. As far as quality, yes DW has the name but in the last five years or so MANY companies have came out that are doing some crazy things. If anyone has been to NAMM they know what I'm talking about. I'm actually in the process of getting a custom kit in the near future myself. One good thing also about some of these newer companies is that they'll drop prices and give some really sweet endorsements to make their folks happy. Just look around and search custom drums online and check out the "Custom" options you want and what they can actually offer.

    What custom options are you looking for that production line companies can't/won't do? I'll make a big list in a little while on some custom companies I've been looking into. For now, off the top of my head I really like what Orange County does "except for the price", and Battelfield is a Christian based company that really listens as well as Shine Drums. DDrums "known for their triggers" have been really pushing the envelope on drums in the past few years when they came out making acoustics. There's many more I'll add later. Blessings.........
