ABOUT PRIMAS CUSTOM DRUMS
WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND IT?
MY JOURNEY SO FAR
Primas Custom Drums is the product of many years in development of many different skill sets. Firstly and most importantly; playing drums in excess of 20 years in various bands and projects, both live and in the studio. This valuable experience teamed with a background in mechanical engineering, fine wood working and a natural curiosity for how things are made, progressed into producing my first drum back in 2015 with great success. Since then, many hours of work, experimentation and testing has enabled me to produce some phenomenal drums. I am now at the point where I am ready to share my creations with the world and give drummers the opportunity to own some of the highest quality drums available.
