C&C Custom Drums @ 2013 Winter NAMM

After establishing its reputation on striking abalone-finish snare drums and kits, the folks at C&C Custom Drums have recently taken their catalog in new directions. The company is now building its own shells, and we got a good look at the all-mahogany Player Date kit, as well as the Player Date II, which features a thick mahogany core sandwiched between two inner and two outer plies of maple. C&C also introduced a pair of metal shell snare drums, including a beaded copper model with nickel-plated hardware and a nickel-over-brass model.
