I've heard of this company. AMAZING looking drums...love their flair. The lugs are cool (Ego Lugs) and the wooden badges are a really nice touch.

Can you give us more detail on these? How long to build? Good quality? What type of bearing edges? It'd be WAY cool to hear some audio or see some video clips. :)

Very nice and the beautiful stained woodgrain isn't covered by spaceship sized lugs.

That is a very beautiful kit. We need to see and hear a video now ;)

Are these Anchor drums made in the US? Where are they from?

Working with Shawn was nothing but pure happiness. He kept me up to date, knew EXACTLY what I wanted, and didn't mind making adjustments halfway through the process just cause I couldn't make up my mind. the kit itself blows me away every time I hear it. As of now, I have no actual sound clips cause our last album was recorded with my Pearl Session Studio, but I'll put some up as soon as I have some tracks. Here are some more pics for you guys..


ps. YES, that's McLovin in the pic using my kit around two weeks ago..

Stunning drums, getting lots of attitude from the large grain irregularities. Most companies try to minimize natural variations in the grain and keep them as tiny as possible, giving the drums a wrapped, factory-made-to-perfection ho-hum look. With these, the natural beauty of the wood really shows through and forces you to stare at them.

nice kit. I checked out their web site and they seem to use a lot of satin style finishes on their kits. Their stuff looks really nice. Price is pretty good too.

Not 100% sure, but I've heard Anchor Drums are the same company that was known as "Bearing Edge" drums.

They do look great.......love the wood badges
