Founded in 1972, Drum Workshop has been a leading manufacturer of drums and drum hardware for over 40 years. Innovations introduced by this leading-edge brand during that time include the world's first chain-drive kick drum pedal in 1980; the first ever double pedal design for use with a single bass drum in 1983; and the first remote cable hi-hat mount in 1985. Drum Workshop now enjoys a hard-earned reputation for producing high-quality handcrafted drums made from the rarest tonewoods finished in gorgeous lacquers. And of course, they continue to lead the way in hardware manufacturing, offering a wide variety of the most robust drum hardware available anywhere. Is it any wonder that Drum Workshop is known as The Drummer's Choice®?
