Truth Custom Drums @ 2014 Winter NAMM
Custom drum companies once again plumbed the depths of their creativity to come up with cool and unusual designs to display at the Winter NAMM Show. This year Truth Custom Drums managed to straddle the chasm between retro and radical with a hybrid shell kit that featured maple shells with a horizontal stripe of acrylic dissecting the center. Even more notable was the bass drum logo treatment – instead of printing the Truth logo on the reso head, the company affixed an engraved birch logo to the front hoop. We also got a look (and listen) to a beefy bell brass snare with an elaborate Liberty Bell engraving.
