    Default Boutique/Custom/"Other" Drums Thread

    I thought maybe we could have a dedicated thread for custom drums and boutique companies and such like we have threads for the other companies. Companies like SJC, C&C, Craviotto, and really small companies like my favorite drum maker, Addiction Drum Design.

    I will start with my most prized possession. It is a completely custom, one of a kind 14"x7" segment snare drum made of wenge, maple, and zebrawood with black chrome hardware. Built by a one-man company called A.D.D.



    Also, I'm very sorry if this goes against any forum rules.

    LJM, I think it's a good idea, and I just made it a sticky. When you go into the drumset forum, it will come up at the first part of the list, just like the threads about specific drum manufacturers. The only way this might transgress the forum rules is if it became a place where people tried to advertise for specific makers. Just showing off your gear is no different than other threads where we post pics of our gear.

    BTW, that's a gorgeous snare! Can you describe the sound that you get with the different woods in the shell?

    Thank you! First of all, it is decently thick. But despite that and its depth, it is a very lightweight drum. The drum, sounds even better than it looks (And I think it looks amazing!). It really sings. It's got a pleasantly bright tone with very pleasing overtone. It came with an Evans Genera on too which cuts the overtones and brightness down to the perfect amount. And I agree that the black hardware goes well with the drum! The drum maker can make a segment drum to any specification with any types of wood you want. And he has begun doing contouring on some shells, which look amazing. That is the most I will say, because I don't want to market the company. I would like to stay within the rules.

    Love it! I haven't seen too many segmented shells with those wood types. I have seen zebrawood used by DW, but generally only as a veneer for finishing purposes. The black sets it off real nice too! I just want to thank mods from the bottom of my heart for giving us a sticky for custom drum thread. You guys rock!

    They are Finnish birch, Kumu makes the veneers himself too.
    Only 3,8mm thick with 1,8mm "soulrings". Probably world thinnest bodys?
    BD is 5mm with 1,8mm rings. Very open sound, and extremely responsive even in very soft hit. Love them to death.

    Also thicker ones are available, also vintage sounding new model with not sanded inside with laquer.

    If I had more money when I order my drums, these would be my choise:



    Probably most beautiful set I've ever seen and tried..

    I have a 6-piece Pork Pie custom drumset wrapped in turquoise sparkle (although I only play a 4 piece now). Maple Keller shells with sequential serial numbers.

    Seen here is a 12x10 (width x depth) tom, a 16x14 hanging floor tom, a 13x5 snare, and a 22x18 kick. I have a 10x8 tom and a 14x12 tom backstage.

    Cymbals:
    14" Sabian AA hats (I've had these for almost 20 years)
    10" A Custom splash
    14" A Custom Fast Crash
    15" A Custom Fast Crash
    20" A Custom Ride (not the medium ride or the ping ride)

    I have two pieces of custom work on my kit. First, the front kick drum head was a special order from Pork Pie (they no longer do custom heads). When my wife ordered this for me as a Christmas present years ago, she called Pork Pie drums and talked to Bill Detamore himself (he's the one who picked up the phone). When she placed the order, he said, "I'll get to work on it this afternoon." Chances are, Bill did the work himself.

    Another custom piece of PP work can be seen here - my custom PP drum throne:



    Nope. PP does not mak a drum throne with a backrest. For another Christmas present, my wife got in touch with PP and told then she wanted to get me a throne with a backrest. They suggested she purchase the throne, then buy a Rock-n-Soc backrest, have it shipped to PP, then they would cover it in matching material as the seat and install any necessary brackets. They said that they had only done 3 of these in the history of the company. They no longer do custom work like this.

    I love my drums. I glance at other drumsets in music stores, but I'm never envious and I haven't been for the better part of a decade.

    Hi folks!

    I need your opinion. I just found a used Taye Studio Birch kit on C.L. The finish is Turquoise Glass Glitter. It's posted as being "like new." It's a 6-piece shell pack. Sizes are 22x18, 10 and 12 racks, 14 and 16 floor toms, and a matching 14x5 snare. Price is $850 firm.

    I don't need it. It's my gas kicking in. I already have a Tama mini-kit, and a Mapex Meridian Birch which is a 5-piece: bass drum, 2 up, 1 down w/matching snare.

    What do you think?

    I think you might have shown that one on some other thread. It is indeed a eye catching drum you have there!

    Not a great picture of it, but it's one of my unique little items. It's an 8" by 6" acrylic 'effects snare' made by Pansini Percussion, who operate out here in Western Sydney.


    Nick, who's the owner/operator of the company, had a right ol' laugh with me when I specified the size......only earlier that week, in complete contrast, he was also building a 14" by 8" deep acrylic snare for another customer....I think we kind of compared the situation like a Great Dane versus a small terrier or Chihuahua! But I wanted a small effects snare that was even smaller and high pitched than anything like you'd find with Tama or perhaps a Pearl Firecracker or Popcorn snare.....which are nice little auxillary snares, but this one with it's even smaller diameter I can tuck in nice and close to my hi-hat, and it even goes well with the mini-timbales that I sometimes use in both my percussion set ups as well as being a drumkit add on. And yess, I did specify the Ludwig Classic lugs so that it would match my Ludwig toms.

    Just wondering.. Does custom apply to DW collectors, Pearl Masterworks, or Sonor SQ2 type programs? Technically they are built to order like most custom makes, so would they also technically have a spot in this thread?

    The beautiful craviotto kit my local shop has. Very similar to my teachers kit, excet his kit is a little darker in color and doesn't have the tom mount. Solid play all maple shells. Best stuff I've ever heard, sounds better than Dw Collectros by far. 18,14,14,12
