When it comes to buying a custom-made drum it’s a bit like buying a tailored suit. DS Drum offers a product to the musician that is tailored to their individual needs and requirements in tone, performance and finish, and is different from the rest. It must fully satisfy the high construction characteristics required and satisfy the professionals too because this is a working tool. The instrument must be solid, it must sound good, be easy to tune and it must be robust. The drummer has to be able to rely on his DS Drum kit, sit there and sound good, because our philosophy is to offer a sound and a balance that is of a single musical instrument.
