We make and repair drums
We make drums for schools
Our drums evolved between 1996, when we started out, till around 2010, when we started to sell the current floor toms for children. This evolution, combined with customer feedback, has resulted in a drum stock ideal for school and kindergarten applications.
We repair drums
If your drum is worth repairing, then we’ll be happy to do it. Your drum will be fully restored, although probably sturdier than it was new and more suited to sustained use.
We have a range of proven drums
Most of our early drums from the 1990’s are still in use and working fine. Very few of the newer ones, all around New Zealand, have needed repairs.
We listen to your needs
We usually make floor toms, ashikos and tamborines. This will not stop us producing a custom-made membrane instrument tailored to your requirements.
Why we do it
It is very hard to find drums set up for children to use. Our drums are long lasting and can be re-tightened regularly. They are sturdy and will take the kind of punishment that occurs in schools.
We want to be proud of our products so we create repairable drums and source our materials locally. We follow our ethical principles as best as we can. Some of our materials would be discarded unless we use them.
Still not convinced? Here is another one:
Percussion music has always been part of our life. We simply love the idea of enabling a wider access to music. The developmental impact of using drumsticks and rhythm, for children, is a worthwhile project. We propose percussion equipment with clear pedagogical benefits.
