C & C drums are made by musicians who also are craftsmen in the art of creating quality, often custom-made, drums at their  shop in Gladstone, Missouri.

Some drum companies claim their products are handcrafted, when in fact, they are manufactured overseas and only assembled in the U.S.

Founder Bill Cardwell started C & C Drums twenty years ago after years of collecting vintage drums and studying how they were made. The result is an authentic vintage sound preferred by discerning drummers throughout the world.

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.
