Drum Making Supplies- all supplies are sourced with the UK if possible (horse, cow, buffalo are from the US) and then internationally if suppliers the UK are unable to fulfil an order.
Hoops are bought partly made and then lovingly finished by myself.
Orders can take unto 6 weeks to fulfil, larger orders may take longer.
Wholesale for large orders over £500 can be arranged.
Postage is extra.
NOTE! You will need to know how to make a drum and have all the necessary tools to do this! If you would prefer a kit that is ready to go, and comes with a tutorial video- see my Etsy Shop.
TO ORDER– email me with your requirements, I will confirm what I’ve got in stock and give an approx time on how long it may take to fulfil and order. email me here firstname.lastname@example.org
