HISTORY OF DB
Officially Founded in 2010. Like most drum builders I started making drums for myself and friends from out of the back shed. That was it, I was Hooked! As a Carpenter by trade I had always worked with wood and associated tools and developed a love for making things however it wasn't until I started building drums that I realized just how much. There is something magical about being able to build something with your own hands, then play it and hear the sound it creates. Building Drums has brought me close to many great and talented people who I have learned and continue to learn from and it always seems that everyone I meet who is passionate about building and playing drums is equally passionate about life.
Combining my passion of drumming and drum building gave me such enjoyment that without realizing it, drum building became my everyday life. As a drummer, building drums, it was great to finally have more insight into the drums that I played and finally understand why they sounded the way they did and in turn what I could do to make them sound the way I wanted. As building each new drum I always had new ideas to test and the result was always exciting & rewarding.
Building Drums? or Playing Drums?, I'm still not sure which is more Fun! However one thing I am sure about is the incredible energy and enjoyment that comes from building and playing your own drums. For years I have made this energy and enjoyment the base of my drum building / drumming and now understand that "doing what you love to do every moment of everyday, is indeed the energy of life itself". This was the beginning of my base, my Drummers Base. This is my History.
