Perfect for church, and just about everything else.

Vintage Series

With shells made of African Mahogany and North American Poplar – a nod to the drums of the 1950’s and 60’s – our Vintage Series drums are perfect for anyone looking for those warm, vintage tones that have become synonymous with the modern worship sound made famous by the likes of Hillsong and Bethel.

Sunday Series

Our Sunday Series drums provide a classic warm, round, metallic tone and have quickly become a favorite for worship drummers around the world. Dan McMurray‘s Modern Classic and SE snares can be heard on Hillsong‘s There Is More and Awake albums, while our Modern Worship snare has become increasingly popular among drummers looking for the much sought after “Bethel snare sound.”

Retro Series

Those wanting a little more attack, like Brendan Tan of Hillsong Young & Free, need look no further than our Retro Series drums. Acrylic welded and sealed shell construction paired with 45-degree bearing edges give our Retro Series drums a pure, round tone with unparalleled attack.


Proudly played by some of the world’s most celebrated drummers.

Hillsong’s Dan McMurray on his Sunday Series Modern Classic snare.

“I have been using my Blackbird Sunday Series snare for about a year now. Since I first received it, it has been my main touring snare drum with Hillsong Worship and Lauren Daigle. It has also been my go-to snare drum in the studio and for any live recordings I have done.

I don’t think you can go wrong when you’re building a snare thats modelled after such a classic formula, but the Modern Classic snare has a freshness to it that I have found really appealing.

I am totally happy having this snare in my arsenal and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a diverse yet classic snare drum that also boasts a little bit of an edge as well!”
