A little about

ATTIC CUSTOM DRUMS

In September of 2021, we had the idea to build custom snare drums.  But not just to build high-quality snare drums; to build quality drums with unique finishes and give drummers a chance to purchase or have a drum built to their specifications with a finish that reflects their personality. High-end snare drums that meet the demands of your drumming with finishes that are as unique and as individual as you are.

We believe that those who choose to purchase from us are friends and not merely customers.

 

*The Dedication Series: Each drum in our Dedication Series: is dedicated to one of our loved ones that have gone home before us and have been thoughtfully designed to reflect that person.

*The Freestyle Series: These are designs that we just create

whatever comes to mind. 

*The Heavy Metal Series: These are all metal snare designs.

*View specs and prices for each drum in our store.

You've had ideas of what your own personal snare drum would look like, haven't you? Be honest. You may already know or maybe you got some ideas from what we have in our store.

Whatever it is you want to build, we can help. 

Even if you have an idea for a finish that goes beyond a stain, wrap, glitter, standard paint, or decoupage, we partner with a local artist who can bring your ideas to life. 

Want different heads than what is on our drums? No problem. Let us know your preference and your drum will ship with your requested heads on and ready to play.

Because each custom drum is completely unique, the cost will also be unique and based on materials, amount of labor, artist work, etc. Email us with your idea to get a quote.

One of our unique ideas is a decoupage finish as opposed to a stain or a wrap. This is a fun way to create a drum with a finish that is as unique as you are. Almost anything can be used to decoupage!

Each of our sparkle finishes is done by hand and is not a wrap finish. This adds a whole new dimension to this type of finish. 

We also work with a local artist to create extreme customs.

*Billy's work is noted on the images. 

*We cut our own bearing edges, customize, drill, and assemble everything by hand at our shop in Brevard, NC, USA.

*Wood shells from Keller and Nordic

*Metal shells from WorldMax USA
