From the very beginning, The Supernova Drum Company has been focussed on pushing the envelope. We are striving to offer everyone their chance to own their very own custom drums. How are we doing this?
SDCo. is the first ever custom company where you decide how much work you want done to your drums! You can have them made entirely by us, or enjoy putting together their own drums in varying stages. We now give YOU a choice of 4 different Levels of production! Choose from any of our many options including Types of Wood in their Shells, Finishes and Hardware to create your own ideal set of drums! Get a quote for any drums you are after with your own choice of Production Level by clicking on the links here :
Level 1 :
Shell & All the Parts you need!
With Level 1, you are given all of the components to create your very own drum. We will give you the relevant know how and assistance to get you up and running!
The most cost effective option to take with each Drum being around half the price of a fully completed one!
Level 2 :
Shell with Bearing Edges & Snare Beds as well as All the Parts
With Level 2, we will cut the Bearing Edges and Snare Beds for you as well as give you all the components you need. You can then create your drums to suit!
Level 3 :
Finishes Added & All the Parts
With Level 3, we will fully finish your drum shell but not drill or screw on any of the component parts included.
Level 4 :
Fully Completed Drums
With Level 4, the whole drum is fully finished with all of your chosen component parts added. Straight out of the box playability!
Only the Level 4 drums are signed and numbered inside by us.
All of our drums will come with your choice of Hardware and SDCo. Nameplate as well as any other options you require.
Start by choosing your dream set of drums from our different Shells using Wood, Metal or Acrylic!
All of our Wooden Shells are constructed with either the Block or Steam Bent styles of construction.
We are not like the majority of other custom drum companies who use pre-made Keller Shells, or as they might put them ’100% American Maple’, all our drums are TRULY custom, each one created just for YOU from scratch!
We are proud to offer a large choice of quality Finishes for your drums! We have a great selection of Finishes including :
Wraps | Naturals | Stains | Custom Wraps | Exotic Wood Veneers |
Distressed Vintage Paint Effect | Oils | Sprays | Acrylic | Custom Artwork
If you are choosing Levels 1 & 2 as your production option, we will assist you as much as possible with your finishes.
Here are some are some of our favourite drums from the past featuring our wide range of Finishes :
