Chicago Drum & Restoration

It isn’t very often that a new drum company comes out of the starting gates with a decades-long legacy, but Chicago Drum & Restoration has managed just such a feat by employing Slingerland’s original shell-molding machines. The company offers two types of models – the American Classic Series with maple/poplar shells and beavertail lugs, and the American Heritage Series with maple/poplar shells with an inner ply of mahogany and solid maple rings, fitted with tube lugs and single-flanged hoops. These folks are definitely going for a vintage look and sound.
