just a guess... this would happen to be your custom drum company, would it?
sounds like a shameless plug. there are plenty of drum company owners on dw.
be a drummer and a contributing member first, then plug.

Let me guess...Keller Shells? Not that there's anything wrong w/ them...they're great - I'm just curious how many "custom" builders the market can sustain.

I'm not sure I'd buy "EZ" drums, the name is not so good...it screams "el cheapo" to me. They're nice looking though and I like the lugs, they look like Egos.

Here's the original "EZ" on the market:

better pricing than Truth and Phattie for a 3 piece kit. But Truth and Phattie are truth and phattie. Dark Horse still has the best price. not a bad idea, but i agree, how many more custom shops are out there? how many more do we have to sift through? lol the yellow fade kit looks cool though :]

im going to build a kit with keller shells... i dont mind them. they sound good. BUT im not paying anyone to do what i can. i priced out my kit (to the cent) and itll cost me $1037.24. SJC would charge over $6k! haha, even a dark horse cant compete with my price.

ps. build some credibility with a few posts before spamming. were more likely to believe you have a decent product if that little ticker has a number bigger than 1.

One good thing going for EZ and/or Canadian drummers. The Toronto location. So for all the Canadians who always scream about shipping/tarriffs/etc., here's another Canadian (local) guy.

Ugh, don't even mention that kit. The only thing made by PDP on that kit is the logo.

Xalky, the thing is, it's obvious that this is a shameless plug disguised as an unsolicited endorsement from a 3rd party person. If he's gonna come in with his transparent publicity fumble, he needs to be prepared to suffer the wrath of the forum members. What he should have done is come in as first party, which i don't think is against the rules. Just be honest.

I would have said,

"wassup fellow drummers! My name's John from ez custom drums, we're a new custom drum shop from __________. We use genuine north american maple shells sourced from________. We can create the drumset of your dreams at a price that will blow you away! Why pay premium price for a set that anyone can order off the warehouse rack when you can create a totally custom drum for a fraction of the price that no one else has? Check out our gallery on our website and email us for more information"

Now, since he decided to come with the charade, we're all calling SHENANIGANS.

I went to the website and saw the gallery. Nice looking kits, but there's only like 2 on there. I'm thinking this new company has only made say...two kits?

Who in their right mind would put their high end drum in the snow for pics, rent a studio dammit. Also you may want to photograph your drum in a better set up.

wow, some harsh comments here. As for the comment earlier "everyone and their mother owns a custom kit" well pretty much everyone else and their father owns a pearl, tama, or dw kit. Which are great. I love the Custom Drum company market and I think he has a good start going on. I think pretending to be someone else for a plug was lame though, I mean ... c'mon. but with some time I hope things go well and the company grows out of Keller shells (my opinion) and the name, seems really unattractive. I want something that isn't made easy. If people go to cusotm companies they want a different hard to make kit with certain woods, and hoops not anything really easy we all could build. I'm endorsed by C&C and I love the vintage way they took their business so that could be a direction for a certain line of EZ drums? i don't know. I like your idea and I wish you the best of luck and hope you don't plug like you just did. Take Care

I'm still trying to decide if that was shameless or shameful. Perhaps both. Is that even possible?

Checking his profile that is his only post so I would think shameless.
And the website still has the same four pictures in the Snow Gallery
so I guess they haven't made any drums since.

I'm with RKTopper on this one.

Making drums for a living or at all is not as easy as people seem to think it is. Good luck man, i hope you have a great and long career making drums and making drummers happy with your gear! :-)


God Bless,

I have a custom drum company....mark me down. The fact is that building your own custom drums is becoming more accessible than ever before. There are countless custom drum companies, but there are also more drum supply companies than ever. Custom drums are great, but really the biggest thing that will set your drums apart are not what materials you use or the type of finish, it's how you personally brand the image of your drum company.

Hey, you lie in your first and only post--to plug your product--you get harsh. In other circumstances it's known as fraud.

Why not? What he did was shameful, and you have to be shameless to do it. No doubt he's ashamed he got caught, too.
