Custom Builder Highlight: Anchor Drums...












I've been talking with Shawn from Anchor Drum Co. We connected through the DrummerEtc FB page, and after I checked out some of his drums, decided everyone should know about Anchor Drums.

As you can see in the pics, Shawn and his crew build beautiful drums...from lug to finish. They're not as interested in building a company as they are in building a community of people that supports their "brand" and interpretation of what drums should look...and sound...like. In his own words...


"We want to build beautiful drums that have a distinctive look and feel to them. No, we are not here to re-create drums. We are not here to be better than any other company. There are some fantastic companies out there doing some amazing things with drums! We are here because we love drums. We want to create beautiful pieces of art that are also, as we call them, “beefy cannons”. Sort of flows with our vibe and theme. We love the nautical/pirate aspect, what can I say."

What a novel outlook...build something of quality and uniqueness and concern yourself more with the people involved than the object you've created and your bottom line. He's making a brand that interprets the drums as he see them. That's quality peoples I tell ya!

And as far as pricing goes...for a custom built kit, they're VERY competitively priced...and they offer specials every now and then, so check back often...you don't wanna miss out on a chance to get a drum of this quality for the price he offers them at. They've also got some plans for some nice swag (shirts) too...so check it out...you won't be disappointed! www.AnchorDrums.com

Shawn and co. are currently building a 'Bonham' style kit for me. Really great customer service thus far. Can't wait to see how things turn out.

Stephen:

Will be sure to post/send pics. I'm sure Shawn will have them posted on their Facebook and webpage prior to me receiving them.

The paradiddle is a funny little rudiment, because if you
walk into an average middle school band program, even some
of the trumpet players and other wind players, usually boys,
know about paradiddles. I seem to recall many of them asking
me what a paradiddle is, because they'd heard of them, but
didn't know how they were played. I think it's definitely
one of the most popular rudiments among kids.
