My name's Jak and I build drums. I have been playing for 15 years and being a gear nerd combined with working in a drum shop for 10 of those years has lead to me playing many, many drums.
I became obsessed with tuning and heads. They play a large part in how your drums react and how they sound. Though I believe that it's really hard to appreciate, or even tell the difference between drum shells if they're tuned poorly. Once you start tuning well and getting the most out of your drums that's when you can really start to hear and appreciate the shells for what they are.
I am currently building drums and having shells made to my specification from various independent craftsmen situated in the UK combining traditional & innovative methods and using nothing but the highest grade materials sourced from around the globe. I prefer super thin shells that give you that satisfyingly low, air moving pressure that make drums sing beautifully. I'm not a fan of dead, gaffa taped drums. There's a time and a place. And these are made by me in any working space I can get into and from my home in Edinburgh, Scotland.
