WHO WE ARE

Q Drum Co. is a custom shop drum company based out of Los Angeles, California. We pride ourselves on true craftsmanship developed over 15 years of experience in the shop, studio, and stage. Our goal is to produce the finest drums available by combining the techniques of yesteryear with modern and inventive building techniques and materials. We strive to build kits with a quality you can hear, see, and feel.

A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist. - Louis Nizer

DRUMS

At Q Drum Co. we take pride in manufacturing sonically superior drums out of different types of materials, both classic and modern. Traditionally drums have been made out of a few select woods, but we figured that if metals were good enough for snare drums then they should be just as good for the entire kit. Since then we’ve built drum sets out of steel, galvanized steel, copper, and unique brass snare drums, producing all of these shells in-house. Although we’ve broken new ground in the world of metal drum construction we have also excelled in the craft of traditional drum building. Extensive research and experimentation have lead us to the development of unique bearing edges which we feel give our drums a unique balance of tone, attack, depth, and resonance.
