We produce the best custom-built drum sets available
If you are looking for the best custom-built drum set available, one with a classic vintage look and feel, then look no further. You have found your craftsman who has the knowledge, skill, and passion to deliver the best drum set you will ever own. At Chicago Drum we will build the set of your dreams, and give you years of playing pleasure! Sometimes it seems that customer service is a lost art, but that is not the case at Chicago Drum. When you work with Chicago Drum you’re not working with a designated salesperson writing down an order, you’re speaking directly with the person who crafts your drums. Purchasing a hand-crafted drum set is a big investment and it should be everything you envision. We deliver personalized one-on-one service with you, the artist, to create exactly what you want in a drum set – instruments with a very tonal and resonant sound rarely found anywhere else.
Choose Your Shells
Our Chicago Classic™ Series and our Chicago Heritage™ Series Tom and Bass drums feature 6‑ply shells. The Chicago Classic Series features a Maple/Poplar shell that provides a brighter tone while our Chicago Heritage Series features a Mahogany/Poplar shell that has a warmer vintage sound.
Choose Your Drum Sizes
Whether you’re looking for an outfit that’s minimal so it works well in small spaces, or if a large rock outfit is more in keeping with your vision, we can deliver exactly what you’re looking for. If you are unsure what sizes best fit your needs, we can help you find what works best for you.
Choose Your Finish
Are you looking for the beauty of natural oiled wood or a beautiful stain, or is there a favorite wrap you’ve coveted since you were a teenager? Perhaps the amazing fractal finish is exactly what you’ve been looking for. Pretty Things™ finishes open up a whole new range of possibilities. The choice is yours. Take a look at the finishes listed here. If you don’t see the wrap you’re looking for let us know and we’ll work with you to try and make it happen. Although we offer an amazing array of finishes, we do not offer lacquer finishes.
