If you are a serious drummer or collector then the Signature Outlaw Drum Series are the drums for you. This centuries old wood gives a blast of projection and clarity to your drums sound. That's in direct relationship with the high resin content from the slow growth timber most of which was in the forest in the 1600s. Once this wood is gone it's gone.

Specializing in 200-600 year old wood reclaimed from tobacco barns, gymnasiums, plantation house, and old bridges. First we disassemble the structure checking all boards with metal detectors. Then we surface plane the ancient wood. Next it is dried in a kiln for weeks. Then and only then do we start the building project.  The American Wood Reborn Series is hand crafted and designed to highlight old nail holes, saw kerfs, spots in the wood that are stains from years of tobacco leaves sitting on the wood, or where oil ran down and dripped on the floor for years from a mill. On some applications we leave the original nails in the drums and on some occasions use the original bolt holes for venting.  Each piece of wood is studied to lay out the drum to best highlight the history and story of the drum. Each drum kit is an unique piece of artwork. The waiting list for this line is 2-3 months.
