It’s become a mantra among custom drum manufacturers who claim that they will build any kit you can imagine. The problem is that many drummers actually want to see what their fabulous new drum set will look like before plunking down their hard earned cash. Leave it to the clever folks at Stauffer Percussion – purveyors of the Phattie, Black Label, and Cocktail Drums brands – to come up with a high-tech solution. It’s called Kit Preview, which uses advanced lighting and rendering techniques to provide a photo-realistic proof of your kit before the finishing process begins, allowing for last-minute changes and tweaks before the real colors hit the shell. Pricing is $75 for one initial rendering based on your concept, one set of changes, and one final proof. After that set of changes and a final proof, each additional set of changes and rendered proof is an additional $25. Now what will they think of next?
