School Drums

Post by cymtech » Sat Jun 06, 2009 8:32 pm

Hello,

I would just like to take this opportunity to inform everyone about Apollo Percussion. We are a newer custom drum company and specialize in concert & drum set snares. We also build full drum sets and concert toms. Our drums have also been featured at UCLA recitals and given great reviews.

What does this mean to you? We are offering 10% off for schools right now. Everything is built to your specifications by hand. You can view our products and prices on http://www.apollopercussion.com

Most stuff is up already, but we are adding things every week. We also offer 1 ply steam bent exotic woods like rosewood and stave shell drums. Please contact us for a quote on anything you don't see on the site. sales@apollopercussion.com

We also offer drum repair and re-wrapping. If your indoor drum line wants an effect drum or odd size, we can do that too.

If you would like a brochure in PDF form, please PM or email me. Thanks for your consideration.

Wow; those drums look GREAT (I'm a sucker for the wood stain/tube lugs)!
Demo'ed the site, just for fun and the options/prices look good. I'm trying to talk some colleagues into buying new concert snares and I'll definitely check this out/pass along the info to them.

I saw some of these drums live, and they are beautiful. Definitely worth a look.
