U.S. Made, Handcrafted, Vintage Style: C & C Drums
Our thanks to Jared Tredley, C & C Drums

endorsers from Australia and New Zealand (see Artists).
C&C Drum Co. is a small, independent company based in Gladstone, Missouri. We are comprised of musicians and craftsmen who share a common bond, the love of music. This bond connects us to our drums and the people who play them. We’ve never tried to be the flavor of the moment or cater to the latest whim. Our goal has always been to build something of lasting value. We are dedicated to making the best drums we possibly can—drums that will outlive us to become a legacy.
Limited Edition: Circles for Change
Circles for Change is our way of giving back, the only way we know how—building drums. These limited edition snare drums each correspond to a charity we’ve selected to support with the help of Reverb. For more information, go to Reverb.com
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
