C&C Drums

You’ve got to start with over 20 years experience building and restoring kits. Next you’ve gotta take the finest tonewoods from outside of your hometown of Gladstone, Missouri and work them by hand into the famed Gladstone Shells. This is important ­ no bulk factory manufactured stuff here. It’s all gotta be in­house.

Then you’ve got to listen. Really listen. Not only to the drums, but to drummers. You’ve got to have a willingness to experiment with some unique techniques and wood combinations to etch out a one­a­kind sound.

And remember, while you’re doing all of this you have to maintain a true passion for all things percussion & drums, music and your craft. There has to be a dedication to quality, honesty and the player.

It’s not easy right?
