Cold Mountain Drums @ 2013 Chicago Show

Trick Percussion

We had our first face-to-face with the folks from Cold Mountain Drums during the 2013 Chicago Drum Show, and really admired the fine workmanship by company owner Brian Baron. Not only does Baron personally build all the shells used on his snare drums and kits, he actually made all the machinery used to bend the shells. He showed off some of his Combined Select Series snares, which include more than one wood species and intricate inlays. And we were knocked out by the selection of natural wood veneers he offers.
