HighWood Drums is a small drum manufacturer based in Horbury, West Yorkshire, England.
Using only the finest craftsmanship, combining traditional & innovative methods, we produce musical instruments that can rival that of any other in production today.
Making bespoke drums & drum shells, all hand made out of an almost endless list of wood options. Also supplying component drum parts & drum shells to D.I.Y. drum makers & other small drum company’s across Europe via our drum builder website.
Started as a hobby in 2004 by Gareth Heeley making & repairing drums, HighWood quickly developed by making drum shells for other builders & companies, we supply the cottage industry with not only hand crafted drum shells but also components to complete them. This turned HighWood into the first Uk drum makers supply outlet, the expansion of HighWood began.
Moving into a dedicated workshop, HighWood grew through 2005 launching its own bespoke drum lines & expanding its range of parts & drum shells.
The growth continued through 2006 & 2007 with HighWood expanding its workshop area twice, improving & developing its drum shell moulding facilities & drum ranges.
Successful exhibits at Drummer Live & the UK National Drum Fairs, rave reviews in the Industry press & word of mouth from drummer to drummer have led to their solid reputation for quality craftsmanship.
HighWood is going from strength to strength. Still a small operation making drums for those who want the value for money combined with old school hands on production & craftsmanship. All HighWood drums are high quality & great sounding musical instruments, tailored to the individual!
