Outlaw prides itself on the fact that each and every drum we build is handmade, from start to finish. No two drums are exactly the same and each one has it's own unique personality and charm! This holds true even for drums in all of our series.
Outlaw Drums uses old time craftsmanship with modern tools to bring ancient wood back to life as stave and segment drums. We specialize in building showcase drums from 200-600 year old reclaimed wood from barns, gymnasiums, historical houses, decommissioned bridges, and fallen trees. Every custom drum is a unique work of art.
One of Outlaw's core concepts is our dedication to repurpose wood from old buildings, houses, floors or anywhere in which wood of the highest quality would otherwise be left to rot away or be destroyed. We strive to bring life back into that wood and it allows us to help limit the cutting down living trees. There is another reason for repurposing this kind of wood. Anytime you can salvage 200-600 year old wood, the better that wood sounds in the finished drum. Older, slow growing wood has a distinct tonal difference than the farmed wood used in a lot of other companies drums. All of these factors allow us to give our customers eco-friendly drums that are both visually and sonically stunning.
Each drummer has their own musical voice, so why wouldn't you want to own your own identity by playing on a unique and handmade instrument?
