sam drum kit

I am really liking the look and sound of my new Carrera drum kit.  There are very few BRITISH drum makers around – Dave Carrera (Carrera Drums) is one of the finest craftsman that I have had the pleasure of working with.  If you are looking for a drum kit – customised or “off the shelf” in a range of prices – Carrera Drums is the place to go.  Visit the website or email Dave on

Here’s the tech spec from Dave: For us, as demonstrated in our “Vintage” range, Mahogany based shells was the way and 100% African Mahogany is at the core of this set.  The stunning outer is MACASSAR EBONY with a much sort after “Flame” grain effect and the inside of the shells are finished in Sapele Mahogany, which if you ever get close enough to see the inside of the shells, you will see has a gorgeous natural ribbon effect. The Flamed Ebony outer is finished in our glass like high gloss lacquer and the inside is hand waxed and polished, also I have signed each drum with a personal note to Sam, someone I regard as a good friend.”

Thanks Dave.
