Our process starts by hand selecting the best 100% choice North American hard wood shells available. Using tools designed in house, allow us to consistently produce a superior product. Brooks hand sanded bearing edges provide a drum that has fantastic head response, crisp articulation and great sensitivity. Finishes are all hand stained and blended, providing a rich finish, that allows the shell to resonant naturally. We also us a low mass lug to achieve minimal shell contact producing maximum resonance and a classic look. Our process ensures the integrity, feel, and overall performance of all brooks drums.
