Highwood Custom

Our Flagship Drums – Created By Our Hands, To Your Ideas!

The HC Custom is the new drum range we have come up with that consolidates much of what we used to do, trying to let the client know everything we can & cant do has proven impossible over the years, for a while we tried to break this into product ranges based on shell types, but this proved too limiting & with many products crossing over.

We have throw it all together & tried to give you a rough idea of what is set in stone & the rest is up to you, these drums are made from nothing but the best, solid machined lugs, heavy duty cast fittings, to quality veneers & timbers…. these drums showcase just what we can do & can be tailored to suit you.
