hey pj

i was wondering how you got into making drums and where and how you learned? did you do a course on joinery or carpentary? me and my brother are starting to 'taylor' our first drum set next month but its always been a dream to actually learn how to build drums, not nessesarely building the shell, but cutting my own bearing edge and doing my own drilling. if theres any books or tips on how to get into it id very much appreciate it.

thanks, rory

Hey Rory,

I actually got into building drums from being a Medicine Man endorser. ONe day I was talking to Dana on the phone and he asked me if I was interested in building for him.

Dana taught me everything I know. Cutting bearing edges and drilling shells isn't hard to do, it just takes practice, which can get expensive.

There are a couple of drum building message boards Ghostnote, drumshed, and drummaker are good ones.

Also on drummaker.com you can buy a DVD called Guerrilla Drum Making, but theres nothing in there about cutting edges or cutting down shells. Just finishing and drilling. However, the maker of the DVD said there will probably be a second DVD which teaches edges as well as making hybrids and stuff.

Only complaint I have with the DVD is that it's $38
