Nickel Over Brass Elite Bass Drum
All Nickel Over Brass Elite Kits are light weight, hand engraved, and made from our patented raw brass shells, lugs, walnut hoops, our patented T-Rods and hardware, with hand cut straight 45 degree edges and Remo Ambassador heads.
We cut, roll, weld and sand each drum. We found a nickel plater in Texas whose family has been plating nickel since 1930’s. The grandson (46) now runs it, and worked with us to nickel plate our brass the way it was done on those 1920’s-1930’s beautiful antique drum sets!
The Nickel Over Brass Kit tunes lower then their size and are balanced with perfect punch, warmth, & attack.... AND are extremely microphone friendly!
