Liberty Drums @ 2013 Winter NAMM

It’s always a blast to check out the sampling of instruments from first timers at NAMM, and this year we ran across the U.S. debut of Liberty Drum Company. The British manufacturer distinguishes itself by building its own shells from the bottom up, and proudly displayed three handsome kits made from birch, maple, and mahogany. They’re still working on their U.S. distribution, so it may be a little while before you begin to see their kits popping up in your local drum shop.
