Each custom drum is handcrafted by a small group of artist craftsmen in California. They don’t source out shells like other manufacturers. They start from scratch and see the process through all the way here in the USA. No shortcuts are taken, no compromises made.
Each drum goes through Johnny’s proprietary process, and passes through the six most talented sets of hands in the drum building business. Each shell wears Johnny’s fingerprints, sweat, and final signature of approval with pride. Not every board makes it, only the best get Johnny’s signature.
