Default UDRUM CUSTOM DRUMS!

*ADDED NEW PICTURES, SCROLL DOWN*

So i went to pickup my brand new custom drumkit from a canadian company called UDRUM, and i couldnt be more pleased.

specs: 12x8, 14x14, 20x20 with a 13x6.5 snare. all maple and all custom.
on the blue drums i have black chrome tube lugs, 50% offset, on the snare is silber tube lugs.

any more specs, just ask. i'll post more once there actually setup.


edit: the outdoor pics make the blue look more green and pale than it actually is. but still very sexy :)



















NEW PICS AS OF DECEMBER 23, 2008










sorry for all the pics... i was just so gosh darn excited lol.

Cool looking blue, I must admit they do look Sweet!
The black lugs & suspension look great.
I have to ask, why the different color snare?

I would love to hear an Audio file of them :^)

ivg always found the look of a matching snare to be cheesy.. not sure why. it always reminds me of low end starter kits (please dont tear me a new one about this... its just MY opinion) and iv always liked snares to be there own entity.

also, the snare only cost me $50, the owner of the company likes me, so when i bought the kit, he said he would throw in a snare free, i just had to pay for the upgrades (and the tube lugs being $50) so i didnt really have much to lose, so i vaguely described the colour i wanted, and said 'go for it'. i had no intention of nitpicking over a basically free $450 snare. and honestly it came out great.

in the pics.. the closeup of just the snare is what the colour actually looks like, the stacked pics where its orange are kinda off lol.

all maple. and the company is in waterdown (near burlington). if you want to check out more of their creations.. check out www.udrum.com

also, some bigger name canadian drummers use or have used udrum kits, like the drummers for: Silverstein, Not By Choice, I Mother Earth, Farewell To Freeway, Ill Scarlett, Hunter Valentine, Finger Eleven, Protest The Hero, Alexisonfire

Awesome drums man, congrats. they look incredible and I'm in agreement, we need set up with cymbals pics..lol. And a sound file sometime soon too. :-)

I'm with you on the snare, I prefer my snares to Not match my kits, Just my preference.

Beautiful drums. In a world of wraps, bursts and natural finishes (including mine), you have some drums that really stand out. I'd like to see them set up.

Holy crap, your kit is perfect! I love that blue, what is the finish called?? And I really like how your snare looks red in certain pictures then orange in others. Definitely one of my favourite kits on the forum. I agree with you on the non-matching snare, it makes your kit look so unique and personal.

Beautiful kit! Can't wait for set up pics!

i actually custom designed the colour from a concept i had in mind (navy blue overtone with a turquose undertone so in the shimmer of direct light it looks turquose) and the custom drum company custom matched the colour to my concept. they say they are keeping it on file, because in the month since my kit came back from the finishers, to when it was ready fro pickup, they got a whole bunch of compliments on the colour.

Default Re: UDRUM CUSTOM DRUMS!

update: i FINALLY got to play them last night (my guitarist whos house we rehearse in was out of town, and i live in an apartment) and they sound AMAZING!!! even my singer (who loves to push my buttons, and would ususally tell me how aweful they sound) compliemted them haha.

i thought i would have to get used to the 14x14 floor with my 12x8 (im used to a 12x9/16x16) but the 14 has all the same low end as my 16, without any of the ugly thud.

and the kick! sweet jesus does this thing pound! i have a very thin body pillow that i wrap around the inside of the shell against the batter side, and it has sooo much attack, but again, no ugly thud, its so crisp!

i didnt know what good drums sounded like until i played these

I always get a shiver when people stack drums like that. I hear you about snares being a different stain/color than the rest of the kit. You stole my color. Love that kit, very nice.

Niiiiiiceeee kit man.

I have always been a fan of bigger kicks (my main is a 20x26) but played a 20x20 and I have to say it was a fun drum to play.
The kit I played had similar sizes as yours, the tom may have been shorter than 8", but it was a 12, and judging from the fun I had on that kit, I know you have fun on yours.

Cheers!
