Have a pink drum that would look better in fushia? Want that tired old snare to be resurrected as a kick drum? Well. That's... we're not here to judge. If you have a drum and and an idea, but don’t know how to put them together, Schinbein Drum Co. can seriously help you out.
One of our clients brought in a 14" x 4" copper snare drum, purchased from a shop on Granville Street in Vancouver. He didn't like the hoops or the wires, but the shell was beautiful.
Instead of starting from scratch, we turned that copper shell into an amazing drum that was used for years, and for a fraction of what a custom snare would have cost. Not that you shouldn’t buy custom drums. Custom drums are awesome.
One of our favourite modifications to do is cutting shells in half so you can nest your drums inside one another, so that they take up less space when you’re out on the road. How cool is that‽
Want wooden hoops on your toms? Want to turn that random extraneous tom into a snare drum? How about a busking kick from a floor tom? Whatever you want, get in touch and we’ll talk it out.
“My custom Cajon from Schinbein Drums is a totally wicked instrument.”
It was a surprise gift from the awesome D²Drumline crew so at first I didn’t realise what made it so special – I just knew it sounded great and felt more comfortable to play on than any other Cajon I had checked out. Turns out Phillip had worked with the guys to build perfect sized instrument based on my height as well as designing a custom finish in consultation with the guys. Finished with an awesome hand engraved badge personalised for the occasion, I couldn’t be happier with this unique gift!
