Based in The Arches Southampton, I've been building Snare Drums for just over a year. I build for music shops, alongside making custom builds for players and recording studios.
Having spent years playing I decided to use my knowledge and practical experience to begin building my own Snare Drums.
These initial experiments, using a variety of woods with various thickness and depth, led me to devlop a self taught understanding of the range of tonal qualities these different woods can provide for each drum.
I am a drum maker. I like to use oils, dyes and waxes to highlight the grain of all kinds of woods.Each drum is custom made choosing varieties of hardware and various finishes of wood. The shells are personally hand selected from top U.K shell builders and custom made to specification.You can choose the wood, size, thickness and hardware to suit the sound and visual effect you are after.
