 Our Process 

Shells

Being able to produce our own drum shells has given us the opportunity to create the exact sound we want out of a drum. Made from the highest quality veneer, each ply is put through a rigorous quality inspection before being glued and bent into our molds.

Bearing Edges

Our bearing edges are hand cut and hand-sanded. Possibly the most important aspect of a drum’s tone—bearing edges can transform each one of our shells in countless ways.

Hardware

Eclectic, understated, and inspired by the architecture of Kansas City, our lugs are made from die cast steel and plated in the highest quality chrome. C&C Deco lugs are available in either single-ended or double-ended versions.

Finishes

From high-gloss lacquers to satin stains and everything in between, the quality of our finishes is only matched by the quality of our shells. Every drum is hand-sanded and finished by our master craftsmen. Our inlays are simple, elegant, and available in a variety of choices to create something completely original.

Quality Control

After assembling the components, tuning, and testing, we do a rigorous quality control check  to make sure everything is correct. Each and every drum must meet our highest standards before it is packed and shipped to its final destination.

The History of C & C Drums

 

In the early days, C & C owner, Bill Cardwell, developed his craft by restoring vintage drums. He saw how shell construction and bearing edge cuts changed tone and resonance.

Later, when he began building his own drums, he relied on specifications from drums created in the 40’s through the early 70’s to get the Vintage Sound that epitomizes the C & C Brand.

Further refinements came from artists requesting custom C & C kits. The Player Date I and II series are a result of that collaboration.

Check out our process to better understand the care and expertise that go into the making of C&C drums.
