We are very proud of our 100% made in Canada product. Each drum is unique; made by hand, one at a time, thereby becoming a work of art that can be personalized just for you. We use only goatskin which offers an exceptionally high quality of sound. Each skin is meticulously chosen, soaked, stretched and installed on the body of the drum. This is all done by hand.

They are unique works of art made with passion, experience and above all a sense of perfection.
