At TL Drums I am interested building relationships with my customers, listening and working with you to craft instruments that exceed expectations.
TL Drums’ quality shell materials and hardware culminates in drums possessing the sonic and aesthetic refinement customers have come to expect. My motto is “Beautifully hand crafted drums”; I pride myself in only putting my name on instruments that are of the highest level of craftsmanship.
I’ve been drumming pretty much my whole life. I started at an early age and played in a wide range of bands and different musical situations. This variety helped me to develop a an appreciation for the relationship between the specific drum sounds and tunings for different musical styles. Later, when I began teaching drums, I started refurbishing old drums for students experimenting with bearing edges and finishes and learned that even a small change can have an effect on the drum’s sound and character.
Since 2000, I’ve been privileged to design and hand craft unique custom drums for a wide range of drummers with diverse styles and musical tastes. The knowledge and experience gained from these projects, combined with my curiosity and desire to always strive for excellence, has enabled me to create custom tailored drums to fit your personal preferences, style and sound requirements.
I take great pride in creating unique, one-off instruments, which is why you’ll never find two TL drums that are exactly the same. I can replicate a specific drum if required, or custom taylor to your specs that will fit your unique musical style and taste.
I truly love what I do and my greatest pleasure is delivering your perfect custom drum.
