DESCRIPTION & SPECS   |   AVAILABLE   |   GALLERY
Check out our available stock to view drums ready to ship. If you don't see what you are looking for, we can build you one from scratch to create your ideal drum. For inspiration, head over to our gallery page.

Our metal and wooden ply kits have the look and feel of a vintage drum set. The kits are available in a choice of metals from titanium to stainless steel, to a vast array of ply configurations and wide selection of exotic veneer finishes.

The Van Kleef metal shell and wooden ply shell kits have a unique sound that, combined with the resonant qualities of the hand crafted shells range from dry, crisp tones at low tuning, to subtle, articulate tones at slightly higher tuning. The construction of these drums is another reason the drums sound so good.

Below are just a small selection of veneers that we can build your dream kit from. Our ply shells are all built by hand in the UK.

 

  • A selection of metal or wooden ply shells.
  • A choice of straight or solid Sheffield stainless steel hoops, with the option of "Quick-release" in both styles, all made in-house.
  • Solid Sheffield stainless steel single point lugs, turned on a lathe, then drilled, tapped and polished by hand.
  • Stainless steel lugs are brush finished on the sides and mirror polished on the front faces.
  • VK-007 Sheffield stainless steel strainer and butt, with the option to custom laser etch any design or logo on the front of the strainer and mini logo on butt plate.
  • Sheffield stainless steel "VKey", silent ratchet drum key is designed to live inside the VK-007 strainer.
  • A choice of standard "VK Drums" badge bolted to the shell, or a new air hole logo, laser cut into the shell.
  • Setup with Remo Ambassador heads (other heads available upon request).
  • Made by hand in Sheffield, England.
