Custom drum service

In addition to our drums and drum parts, we also offer various drum services.
We restore, repair, customize drum sets and snare drums and even build complete custom drums or snares.

Bearing edges

The bearing edges on the shell have a great influence on the sound of your drum.
We can repair, adjust or even cut completely new bearing edges.

The bearing edges are standard cut in 45 °, 30 ° or round. 
But you decide how you want them to be cut;
- counter-cut
- in- outside different angle
- rounded
- 15°, 30°, 45°, 65°
- ... 
In short, everything is possible.

Snare bed

The snare bed determines the contact of the snare wires with the resonance drum head. 
We can deepen, flatten, widen or even make completely new snare bed.

Shortening of shells / conversion to bass drum

Shells can be shortened to the desired depth. After this, if necessary, the holes for the lugs are also measured and drilled, bearing edges are re-cut.
The conversion of a floor tom to bass drum or vice versa is also possible.

Finish: wrap, oil, lacquer.

Drum wrap

We can re-wrap an already wrapped drum or wrap a lacquered or "naked" drum shells.
By using different types of wrap, we are able to fully wrap a drum without damaging the original paint or wood.
Therefore you can unwrap the drum again and restore the drum to its original state. 
Wrapping in wood veneer is also possible.

To oil a shell, the shell must be completely blank, free of grease and dust. We use a hard wax oil based on linseed. The big advantage is that the oil protects and colors the wood in one single layer. It is also easy to restore damage without any color differences or having to sand the entire drum shell.

The color chart can be found here: oil-color-chart

The drum shells can be lacquered in different variations of gloss; matte, semi-matte and glossy. 
In addition any RAL-color can be added to give your drum set an unique color.
Old lacquered shells are sanded and provided with several new layers so none of the old color is visible anymore.
