Custom Lite

Wallet Friendly, Made To Order Drums! (updated spec for 2017)

The Custom Lite drums are designed to breach the gap between high priced bespoke drums & off the shelf mass produced drums.

Our biggest challenge as a small drum maker is to provide what a client wants at a price every drummer can afford, The CL Drums are as close as we can get to achieving this.

Using a mix of premium materials, mass produced components & combining these with an efficient hand production process we are able to give you control over the size, sound & look of your set, yet still offer a quality of sound rivaling higher priced off the shell kits, keeping the price well within reach of most wallets.

It doesn’t offer everything, but what you do get is a choice of our most common drum diameters, the privilege of choosing your own depths + a good selection of finishes.


  • Shells: 4.5mm  VG birch, Decorative *OliveWood outer veneer (natural finish drums only)
