    Default Modern Drum Shop, NYC

    Hello, my children of the boards

    Just thought I'd let you in on a very nice little drum company that I recently discovered. I got the privelege of playing a 3-piece kit made by them in Glasgow yesterday and I was, completely, blown away! I've never heard drums like them, and they also looked nothig short of fantastic.

    Those who know me will know that I'm not a big fan of "new" finishes and fittings. I'd much rather have a nice, subtle laquer or sparkle over a flame job or lightning graphics, etc. So, to find a nice little drum company that do nothing but deliver the ordinary at unbelievable quality was a breath of fresh air! They also sell a variety of sturdy cases to boot!

    Also, shall we take a look at prices? I'll compare to Orange County just because I can remember their web address off the top of my head

    (All in Laquer Finish) MDS OCDP
    22"x18" Bass = $630.00 $2022.00
    12"x10" Tom = $330.00 $861.00
    16"x16" Floor Tom = $460.00 $1057.00

    I realise that there are a lot of factors involving price I have'nt accounted for, but straight from the websites, this is what i came up with.

    I don't know too much about this company, but I'd really like to get to know their work a bit better. I could definetely be a fan

    He's been written up in Modern Drummer for his fine work [ I can't remeber the owner's name.] I know that a few local Jazz guys play his drums and love them.

    Yeah, they're the only things I'd change on the site pics. But hey, it reads that installing mounting costs more, so that's a welcome fact
