Purdy Drum co started in April 2014 by myself (Nick) and my father (Don). in the attempt to find a Canadian built drum kit for myself to purchase i stumbled across a different style of drum building. Enter StaveDrum these drums are not made with ply’s like most commercially built drum, they are from solid pieces of wood cut at precise angles to form and octagon? except we use 16 pieces what ever kind of shape that is? myself being a trades man of 9 years and my father being a well established handy man extraordinaire for as long as i can remember (28 years) figured we had the skills to build one of these bad boys. Guess what? we built 2 drums this winter one was a pure birch 5.5 x 14 snare and the other was a birch/mahogany 7 x 14 snare, these drums not only looked great they sounded like a hammer my 7″ snare is extremely sharp! i use it to cut through a band with 2 eight string guitars!! and the 5″ snare sounds amazing, reminds me of a marching band snare. all this success with our first two drums, next to tackle a 4pc Jazz fusion kit consisting of a 12” rack tom 14” floor tom and a 22” kick! stay tuned summer project coming up
