Hey everybody.
Anybody know of a drum builder or craftsman in Michigan?
I need to have a couple shells drilled, re-edged and re-finished. They are 12x17 and 12x24. I want to save on some shipping expenses and such, if they're close by.

Any ideas?

Hey, D.B.

I highly recommend:

Exceptional craftsman and a great guy, too.

Thom Monks : 586-929-5390
He's a great guy and does impeccable work.
I think he's in Farmington Hills.
Monks did good work for me, too, Bob. It was an odd series of projects, but he did a great job.

Hey D.B. Cooper...were you able to find a drum craftsman that you could use?

Inquiring minds need to know!

What area of Michigan are you located? Lots of good suggestions here! I don't do much repair type work, but do occasionally for locals in the Kalamazoo area.

If you can't find anyone nearby that you like, you can try this guy in northeastern Ohio. I've used him and he does a good job.
