Drum Building Courses
Ever wanted to learn how to make a snare drum you can play with pride?
Learn about design and proportions. What makes a drum sound the way it does and how can you create the sound you want in your drum.
"Shaping your own drum and getting to choose exactly how you want it to look is an amazing feeling. And what a beauty the result was! Building it from scratch makes you understand sound and how a snare drum works".
- Vicky Osterberg
Learn essential skills and trade secrets to create a professional drum.
"The course offers more than just the reward of building a drum. Preston also imparts his understanding of drums and what defines a quality drum; giving insight and knowledge into how size, wood type and bearing edges effect the sound. Which is extremely helpful when looking at future drum purchases."
- Keir Adamson
It doesn't matter whether you're a beginner or not, you will be guided and supported in creating a drum worthy of all the hard work you've put into it.
