Our drums start from wood — the essential starting point for anything in respect to tone. Not round, perfectly formed pre-fabricated shells, but flat sheets of the most beautiful, perfect wood one can acquire. These same sheets could have been used to make some great furniture. And in the right hands it would have been the best couch, cabinet, desk or door you could find. Of course that’s not what we do at C&C Drums, though. With our in-house made Gladstone Shells we produce the best drums shells you can possibly find. We cut, glue, pressure mold, sand and route every shell we make, and if it’s not perfect we start over. It’s as simple as that. We do it because we care about the drums we make, just as much as you care about the drums you play. We’re happy and fortunate to build drums for some of the greatest players in the world — and we will always continue to get drummers the best sounding, looking and feeling shells around.
Gladstone Shells are made from the woods of the nearby and renowned Gladstone Woods. They are produced by C&C with the passion and vision to create different, exceptional shells. The willingness to experiment with – sometimes unique – wood combinations is what gives C&C kits their one-of-a-kind sound.More
