Chicago Custom @ 2012 Chicago Show

Chicago Custom Percussion

A lot has changed since we last checked in with the folks from Chicago Custom Percussion. The big news is that in the past year the company has begun building its own shells, and apparently has gone hog wild. We saw an impressive range of shells – from solids and segments to blended plies – on an array of kits, snare drums, and raw shells. The company also used the 2012 Chicago Show to debut its value-priced Power Series shell pack and a couple drum stick models that they lathe in their own facility.
