Advice for purchasing - The standard beginners advice is always to buy good second hand equipment instead of new cheap kits but this really requires you to know quite a lot about drums - We can help you buy a drumkit, cymbals and all the hardware and accessories required. Send an email with a few details to firstname.lastname@example.org There is an hourly charge for the work (2 hours is about average for searching for the good deals and supplying you with all the links to go and buy them).
It doesnt need to be items from our stock, We can look for the best deal from multiple shops to get everything you require and can store things for a while if its a present. We will need to know - Budget / colour preference / style of music / height of drummer and if you require courier delivery.
Drum Refurbishing - Light clean / new skins - I can do this for not much more than the price of skins elsewhere. I can get edges re-cut, holes filled, plys glued back togerther, kits rewrapped, painted stained - anything really. New Evans or Remo heads can be fitted along with Puresound or Fat Cat wires. Have a look at my facebook page for some examples of work i have done - @BerthaDrums
Purchasing - I am always on the look out for used stock so drop me an email with some photos and a description if you are considering selling drums or want anything appraised. I am happy to take a trade in against any item you want to buy but email me first and payment will have to be made via an invoice.
Cymbal Repair - I can repair cracks in cymbals and smooth out rough edges.
See example of a cymbal with a large edge crack that had a section removed and then fleabites all around the edge reduced.
Email email@example.com for a quote - roughly I charge £35 for an edge repair and £55 for one in the central area.
New Stock- I have a few basics in stock but I can order in anything you want made by the brands I have contracts with. I should be able to pricematch any other shop so long as its either multiple items or is an expensive item (I need to cover postage to me).
