About

At Blackbird Drum Company, we specialise in creating beautiful, vintage-style drums, built to withstand the wear and tear of modern day touring.

Our Vintage Series drums feature shells made of African Mahogany and North American Poplar – a nod to the drums of the 1950’s and 60’s. These Mahogany/Poplar shells, combined with Maple reinforcement rings and our round over bearing edges, give these drum a classic sound that is rich, robust, and sweet.

Our Retro Series drums feature seamless Acrylic shells and are available in all your favourite finishes from the 1970’s. Seamless shell construction and 45-degree bearing edges give our Retro Series drums a pure, round tone with unparalleled attack.

Our Sunday Series drums have been developed with weekend warriors, club players and worship drummers in mind. These are quality drums at a player’s price point. The Sunday Series Brass Snare provides a classic warm, round, metallic tone and responds with excellent sensitivity at all volumes.
