About dRdrums UK
It comes with some very sad news that our workshop was burnt down on Saturday 17th March 2018. At around 11:43pm a fire broke in the mill, we’re uncertain of the full circumstances at this moment in time as the fire and police are investigating.
A long with our workshop, other businesses in Ray Mill, Staylebridge, Greater Manchester perished and now the mill has completely been destroyed.
We've lost everything, moulds, tools, booths, materials, stock and much more but thankfully no one was seriously injured and most importantly there was no loss of life.
It’s early days, however, we will be looking to set up again soon. Any existing orders will be completed. Any questions please drop us an email. Here is the latest link from the Manchester Evening News (Men). Video and images courtesy of the MEN and partners.
WE WILL RISE FROM THIS. BIGGER. STRONGER. BETTER.
Thanks you so much for all your support, kind words and love at this stressful, heartbreaking time for us.
The dR team ❤️🥁❤️🥁❤️
dRdrums UK is a drum company founded in 2012 by Danny Rees. It started in a garage in Bolton, Greater Manchester and has set up residency in Ashton Under Lyne, a stones throw away from Manchester City Centre.
The vision at dRdrums UK is to create drums that sound incredible and look amazing. dRdrums UK is truly a drum company that tailor and make craft drums, made by drummers for drummers.
We are very privileged to have on the team Mike Worthington (head craftsman), formerly of Carrera Drums (London) and Rick Jupp who was the stixman for elbow over the last 25 years. Both bring a high level of drumming expertise to the company.
We only use the finest grade A woods for all our drum shells, hand picked, pressed and moulded in house using our cold moulding system.
The hardware we put on our drums is the best on the market and our goal is to provide a first class product with a first class service.
We want YOU to feel part of the family.
