New Arrival! Tama Starclassic Performer B/B Molten Satin Brown Burst!

Coalition Custom Drums

CoalitionKit
This is a custom “Coalition” kit that we built ourselves with the assistance of a local wood finisher. The shells are Keller maple. The low-mass lugs combined with the thin shells make this an extremely resonant and warm sounding kit! There will not be another one made just like it! There’s a matching snare with it.

New Arrival! Tama Starclassic Performer B/B Champagne Sparkle

Tama Starclassic

Fresh off the truck! For the Starclassic Performer BB series, Tama has changed up their wood-selection process. After thirty years of experience with birch, they decided to combine it with bubinga. The toms and floor tom consist of four plies of birch and three plies of bubinga, while the bass drum uses an additional ply of birch. This unique combination of wood types, has resulted in a set of shells with unique tonal properties. The birch ensures a strong, aggressive attack and the bubinga provides nicely emphasised low frequencies. All shells have a gold/silver-colored lacquer finish with the festive name of Champagne Sparkle. Shell set consists of a 22 x 18-inch bass drum, 10 x 8 and 12 x 9-inch toms and a 16 x 14-inch floor tom. Price: $1799.99

New Ddrum Dios Ash Kits Are In!

Lots to say about these kits!  First off, the looks.  We’re suckers for indulgent lacquer finishes, and these are a great example of how much wood grain can truly POP.   The black burst adds a cool vignette feel to the grain.  Okay, now my favorite part: the price.  $999.99, INCLUDING THE SNARE DRUM.  I know, we’re nuts.
